by Jill Henderson – Show Me Oz –
I am not an Ozarker by birth. I was actually born in the West, grew up in the Deep South, and spent 10 years or so roving about the Rocky Mountains of Western Montana and other points beyond. I love them all. But when the day came that I first laid my eyes upon the rocky and rolling hills and hollers of the Ozarks, something deep in my bones told me I was home.
