About this book


To the beautiful Ozark hill country comes a man from the world of cities.  Among the people of the distric, with their simle, direct ideals and way of life, he finds the peaceful atmosphere he craves, while his more itellectual philosophy and character come to be valuable elements in the lives of his new friends.

From his relationship with "Sammy" Lane and the Matthews family arise in dramatic fashion the gripping situations and thrilling incidents that bring him into a peculiarly intimate connection with these people, their country, and their simple life.
