OzarkCounty Heart: Boyhood Memories of a Dora Missouri Farm
Author: Martin Capages, Jr. PhD
In "Ozark County Heart," Martin Capages, Jr. shares vivid recollections of his family's brief but unforgettable time on their little farm near Dora, Missouri and in doing so he captures the challenging, confounding and wonderful essence of Ozark County. It is a place like no other, and it has a way of settling into the hearts of those who've lived here. Then, no matter how many years and miles intervene, hillbilly memories keep pulling those hearts back home. The book covers the period from 1956 to 1959 from the perspective of a young boy, used to the life in cities and US Marine bases, when the family left the Marines in Southern California and settled in rural Missouri.
