Published by The University of Arkansas Press and is part of the Chronicles of the Ozarks series.

The distinctive culture of the Ozarks has been preserved through those who lived it and shared by those who love it. May Kennedy McCord did both of these things: her words, based on pure devotion to the region and its people, not only benefited her contemporaries but will also inspire new readers who can now see the Ozarks through her eyes.
