Come along to the Missouri Ozarks!

This is a book that can be enjoyed by both young and old alike. It's living in a rural area with clear streams made for floating and fishing, heavily wooded hills hiding fantastic caves, woodland creatures from the white-tail deer to the wily raccoon, and the hoot of the owls to lull you to sleep.

But when young Bill's parents separate and he comes to this place with his mother, he feels nothing but sadness and loneliness. Then, through an accident, he meets two young hillfolk who show him the secrets and wonders of the Ozarks and teach him what true happiness is. Billy's life, both at school and at home, changes, but there are secrets he must keep.

Though the "Hillfolk" and some of their superstitions come from Ozark folklore, the adventures of the boys could be enjoyed by anyone today. The setting is here!
