About the Book
A timeless book about a river and its people, so well and lovingly written that its interwoven fact and legend has that special quality of good storytelling. The now famous National Buffalo River is one of the last free-flowing rivers in America.

The book depicts the lives and history of the settlers along the Buffalo River and about their blacksmithing, cedar harvesting, 'lasses making and lead mining. And there are also "tall tales." The horse and buggy doctors and "grannie" women are listed as well as many other historical events of long ago. For those with genealogical interests, the author has included cemetery listings with tidbits of information of those buried there. The book includes a name index.

This revised and expanded edition will appeal to all who are drawn by the magic of the Buffalo National River--the nature lover, backpackers and those drawn by the breathtaking Ozark Mountains.
