19 Stars of Indiana: Exceptional Hoosier Men
By Michael S. Maurer

The nineteen outstanding contemporary Hoosier men—one for each star in the Indiana state flag—profiled in this book are leaders and pioneers who have excelled in a variety of pursuits, including law, business, philanthropy, government, medicine, music, art, athletics, religion, and education. The book, published in association with IBJ Media, Indianapolis, and the Indiana Historical Society, features the inspiring stories of Hoosiers shot out of a fighter jet, liberating a concentration camp, subject to court martial, knocked cold in front of twenty thousand fans, facing bigotry, and caught in the middle of ethnic slaughter—lives full of excitement, adventure, and achievement.

Hardcover, 232 pages. IHS Press/IBJ Media, 2010. ISBN 9780871952912.
