FRESH FROM THE HILLS by Marguerite Lyon


Email this review


Living in the Ozarks, -- a combination of cows on the lawn, moonshiners on the hunt for sugar stamps, women doing the work of ten men. The author has collected these stories and anecdotes, written during her past nine years on Sunrise Mountain Farm in the Missouri Ozarks, and the result is pleasant and amusing. Back-to-the-farm-dreamers will see new vistas and even confirmed city-dwellers will envy the people whose tables creak with beef, pork and butter. The author and her husband, both Chicagoans, found their neighbors not only helpful, but inspiring -- good people who love their land and work. Thus, though not a serious study, there emerges a pretty good picture of a little known section of the country. A nice way to get the information, too.
