Summary
This collection of 15 previously publish essays originally appeared in the Missouri Historical Review, the journal published by the State Historical Society. Interest in scholarly study of the Ozarks has increased markedly in recent years, and this collection of old and new essays is directed at the growing audience for work on the history, culture, and geography of the region. These essays demonstrate that mainstream trends in national and state histories shape the character of the Ozarks region, while the oft-quoted Ozarks traditionalism adjusts to play significant roles locally. Historians and Ozarks enthusiasts alike will find these micro-studies an enjoyable read
