Exploring the United States through Literature describes the best of current print and nonprint materials teachers can use with their students to study individual states. Each volume covers a different geographic area and presents selected materials that represent the uniquely rich and varied history, diversity, geography, industries, resources, famous people, and contemporary culture of each state in that region. Much more than a series of detailed bibliographies, the volumes in the Exploring the United States through Literature series also describe classroom-tested activities that directly relate to each source.
The author collects here stories of unique Ozarks personalities he encountered; famous Old West characters and outlaws, including the James brothers, Belle and Pearl Starr, and Buffalo Bill; school life; lost treasures; ghosts; the Civil War; superstitions; crafts; and mountain feuds.
In writing Civil War in the Ozarks, the late Phillip W. Steele and Steve Cottrell extensively researched the battles on the western front that took place between 1861 and 1865. They looked at the heroes, outlaws, and peacemakers who influenced the role the Ozarks played in the war between the states.
