Format: Paperback
Abraham Lincoln lived in southern Indiana, today's Spencer county, from 1816 to 1830, during his formative years between seven and 21. These years in Indiana are the stuff of legend and obscurity. Lincoln's mother Nancy died when he was nine. Lincoln was then raised by his father and stepmother, Sarah Bush Lincoln, who treated him as her own child and is a hero of the Lincoln story. Lincoln revered her. Lincoln's sister Sarah died in childbirth when Lincoln was 19. Lincoln had a brief, sporadic education in Indiana which in sum totaled about one year. But he developed his lifelong love of reading. With book to hand, he engaged in backbreaking manual labor on farms and in the field. The money he earned, by law and custom, belonged to his father until Lincoln reached the age of 21. In Indiana, Lincoln formed the ambition to make something of his life. He rejected what he saw as the dead-end life of his father, Thomas.

In "Indiana's Lincolnland" (2008), Mike Capps and Jane Ammeson offer a photographic history of the Indiana in which Lincoln grew up. Capps is the chief of interpretation and resource management at the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial, the National Park Service site which commemorates Lincoln's Indiana years. Ammeson is the author of several earlier books about southern Indiana. The book is part of the "Images of America" series of local photographic histories published by Arcadia Publishing. This short history of Lincoln's Indiana has both regional and national interest.

Because little contemporaneous physical evidence survives of the harsh and undeveloped character of southern Indiana in Lincoln's time, this book captures Lincoln's Indiana in two ways.. The first part of the book shows southern Indiana subsequent to the years of Lincoln's residence.
