The harmonious existence of the people in the land of the oldest hills (the Ozarks) is predicated upon the agricultural and work calendars of that area. Through some feeble attempts at lyrical prose the author describes the Ozarkians in their intimate relationship with nature. From the invigorating calm of the winter months when fauna and flora are at rest to the gradual calescence of spring and the lethargy of summer, life goes on at an even keel interspersed by such traditional events as a log raising in March, a quilting bee, Christmas preparations. Everything is very romantic and natural as the Ozarkians pursue their simple life, protected from the ingression of civilization. Here is a Grandma Moses catalogue of a region, uncomplicated and unadulterated. For a select lace-and-tea set.
