Summary, etc.: The people of Indiana have always accommodated change, exchanging log cabins and spinning wheels for railroads, cities, and factories in the 19th century; automobiles, suburbs, and foreign investment in the 20th. The present has brought new issues and challenges, as Indiana's citizens respond to a rapidly changing world. Madison offers an invigorating view of one of America's distinctive states and the long and fascinating journey of its people.
