About the book:

The Ozarks region-spanning parts of Missouri,
Arkansas, and Oklahoma-overflows with visible fragments of the past. A
Living History of the Ozarks is a guide to the region through landmarks
and sites which offer clues to its intriguing history. This splendorous land
inspired Phyllis Rossiter, a native of the Ozarks, to write about the area to
help people learn to appreciate its beauty and to recognize our dependence upon
nature. "I feel that it's important to safeguard what we have left,"
says Rossiter. "In my writing, if I can help achieve that, then that's
what I want to do-to help people acquire an appreciation for nature."
Abounding with sparkling lakes and rivers (including the great Lake of the
Ozarks), clear blue springs, rugged mountains, ancient caves, and windswept
prairies, the Ozarks are a visitor's wonderland of natural beauty and legendary
mystique. Author Phyllis Rossiter explores the major areas that make up the
storied Ozarks. The Lake of the Ozarks region, the Springfield plateau, Ozark
mountain country, the Buffalo National River, White River Hills, and the Big
Spring region are all covered in depth. A detailed appendix lists places to
view ongoing history such as caves and rock formations, Indian artifacts,
bridges and ferries, gristmills, Civil War monuments, heritage crafts, mountain
music, hiking trails, floatable rivers, national parks, and more. Offering keen
insight on the area's history, as well as a complete guide to the sites and
scenic spots of this popular American vacation destination, this book is a
marvelous documentation of "living history" for tourists and
interested area residents alike.
Phyllis Rossiter resides in Gainesville, Missouri, where she is an active
writer, photographer, conservationist, and lecturer. She is a member of the
Missouri Writers Guild, the Ozarks Writers League, the Society of Children's
Book Writers, and the Outdoor Writers of America.
