Question for the all the artists/writers/designers…

I’m starting to mentally gather steam regarding a large-ish book project with lots of photos and text, a detailed account of a cross-country road trip I’m about to make. I was wondering what free design/layout programs are a good alternative to inDesign. I can’t afford that as I’m a struggling artist. People have suggested OpenOffice, but obviously it seems a little limited. What are your guys’ thoughts? What would you all suggest?
