Summary note
Today Indianapolis is a city more diverse and culturally rich than ever before. Baer tells the story of people from around the world who chose Indiana's capital for their home, from the Delaware Indians who lived in the area until they moved west in 1818, to refugees from war-town countries such as Vietnam.
