  • Rating: NR
The Wabash is Indiana’s river. Its story of beauty and inspiration is the story of how we became who we are. Go on a 500 mile, 19 county adventure, from the Ohio border to the Ohio River, to examine the delicate balance that exists between the people who live on the banks of the Wabash and the Wabash River itself. Their stories demonstrate the sacredness of the river to Hoosier history.
