Gold Medal, Southeast Regional Non-Fiction, 2017 Independent Publisher Book Awards
“The book will inspire with joy and reverence, a greater love of Indianapolis.”— Senator Dick Lugar ("Indianapolis - The Circle City")
"For anyone who loves Indianapolis, this is truly a book to treasure! All of your favorite Indianapolis landmarks are here including The Children’s Museum, the State Fair, and the City Market. Mandrell’s photos make even familiar scenes feel unique and interesting due to creative perspectives and the use of different seasons and lighting conditions. Indianapolis shines like never before in this book!" - Matt Williams, author of Indiana State Parks: A Centennial Celebration
"As you turn each page, feasting your eyes on this photographic treasure trove, you will be lured to follow in the footsteps of photographers Lee Mandrell and DeeDee Niederhouse-Mandrell. Take in the beauty of the Smokies, as you encounter streams, waterfalls, and forests as well as black bears and other wildlife. The Mandrells use their photographic gifts to record the beauty as God’s ever-changing light transforms each scene before them. This book has been a true labor of love!" - Gary Moore, author of Brown County Mornings (The Great Smoky Mountains - A Visual Journey)
"With their timely and exquisite photography the Mandrells capture the seasons, sensations and moods of the national park level scenery that is the Great Smoky Mountains." - Johnny Molloy, author of Top Trails: Great Smoky Mountains National Park
"Indiana Across the Land is a delightful collection of photographs capturing the very best sights Indiana has to offer. Images of rural and wild scenes, weather worn structures, snow covered landscapes, and colorful caverns display the state’s hidden gems in an incomparable and artistic fashion, covering all the seasons while showcasing creative photographic techniques." —Nathan Strange, author of A Guide to the Knobstone Trail
"I have seen Lee Mandrell's work. He is very talented, great eye and beautiful photos. Can't wait to see the book..."
