A profile of me and my writing about the Missouri Ozarks is in this week’s edition of the Phelps County Focus. Read more about my creative efforts in boosting the Missouri Ozarks and telling the stories of its culture.
“As someone who’s a booster of the Ozarks, I think it is incredibly important that we tell Ozark stories. If we’re not telling stories about ourselves, our region, our history, our culture, in ways that connect with people today, then our stories and our culture is going to die. They’re going to disappear – those stories are going to go away, and we’re going to lose a lot of ourselves in the process.”John Gibson
