Abstract:

What does it mean to live in Indiana at a time of great change? Twelve gifted writers and artists, all Hoosiers, grapple with this question from their personal perspectives. The composite portrait which emerges from their "responses" is enlightening, challenging, revealing, sometimes painful, and always interesting. Whether it is the landscape, the burden of history, the experience of being black or female, or our attitude toward the environment -- any citizen of the state, or the nation for that matter, will find value in this collection.--Back cover.
