Perched high on bluffs above the Ohio River, Clifty Falls State Park boasts great hiking, scenic waterfalls and camping at a family friendly campground. Taking its name from the falls on Clifty Creek, the park got its start from 570 acres given to the State by Madison residents. Numerous picnic areas and shelters allow families a good spot to relax while enjoying a picnic meal. Visitors wanting to stay in comfort can book a room at the Clifty Inn. The Inn boasts a restaurant, swimming pool and sitting area that overlooks the river. Hikers can traverse a historic railroad tunnel on one of the trails. The tunnel formed a part of the Madison and Indianapolis Railroad, which went bankrupt before the tunnel saw use. Clifty Falls features over thirteen miles of hiking trails. The park has four waterfalls, most accessible only by trail. The main falls, a sixty foot cascade, is near Clifty Shelter and accessible to picnickers. The Indiana State Park Travel Guide Series will encompass all the family friendly Indiana State Parks. Indiana's State Park system is one of the finest in the United States. With great hiking trails, history, camping and nature, there is something for everyone at a family friendly Indiana State Park.

"The Water" is based on [John 4:14]. "But, whosoever drinketh of the Water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the Water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water, springing up into everlasting life." The Water is a story of pioneers around the year 1740. Charlie Dawson, a mountain man of unusual courage and skills, with another mountain man are preparing an area in the mountains for a number of families to move to from the flat land. The flat land would be Virginia today , and the mountains would be West Virginia. The central characters are the Colberts, Gramma, Grandpa and Thad. Thad's parents died in the mountains, where Charlie and Mac are working. As the two mountain men plan and prepare, they are visited by two Frenchmen, who are missionaries at heart, then later by white renegades, then by Indians. Meanwhile, down with Grampa and Thad, Thad finds a new little friend, which brings on adversity and unfriendly encounters. "The Water" is full of action, adventure, mystery and common sense stirred into a Spiritual mix, that is palatable to the Bible believer's appetite. It can be enjoyed and appreciated by Bible lovers of all ages.
Suzan-Lori Parks confirmed herself as one of the most exciting and successful playwrights of her generation when her work Topdog/Underdog was awarded the 2002 Pulitzer Prize, making her the only African American woman to win the award.
Despite the cultural weight of this achievement, Parks remains difficult both to pigeonhole and to summarize.
This volume seeks to provide a context for her work, with essays from major and emerging scholars addressing the importance of factors such as gender, ethnicity, language and history in plays from her first major work, Imperceptible Mutabilities of the Third Kingdom to the 365 Days / 365 Plays project. Suzan-Lori Parks: A Casebook represents the first major study of this unique voice in contemporary drama.
