est. 1989

Recommended by another local author, this novel by Ozark native, Bruce Maggard, is set in the 1887 Ozark hills. Though this novel is fiction, it is based on true events and its characters depict both real and imaginary people. 

A word from the author: “Since you are reading this I owe you a great debt. You, or someone on your behalf has chosen to spend their hard-earned money on my novel and you are about to invest a significant portion of your time reading it... Thank you for this opportunity.” 

We love our local authors and the stories they share! Visit Bruce's Facebook page to stay up to date with him!
