Book Notes and Acknowledgments
Early History of the Northern Ozarks. By Gerard Schultz.
(Jefferson City, Mo.: Midland Printing Co., 1937. Pp. 192.)
This book is a compilation of factual material dealing with
man's development in the northern Ozarks "from the earliest times
to 1860." The author brings the narrative to a close in 1860
because that year marks the end of the formative period in the
history of the people who now inhabit the region treated. The
subject matter is based largely on county records, newspapers,
and journals. Most of this material has not been used exten-
sively before. The book, in a brief general way, takes up the his-
tory of seventeen counties. They are Benton, Camden, Cole, Craw-
ford, Dent, Franklin, Gasconade, Laclede, Maries, Miller, Moni-
teau, Morgan, Osage, Phelps, Pulaski, Texas, and Washington.
Only three of these, Miller, Franklin, and Moniteau, have his-
tories published recently. This book is a valuable addition to
the reference materials on this section of the country. An index
would have made it more usable.
The review editor hereby acknowledges the receipt of a copy
of Country Life Stories: Some Rural Community Helpers, by
Elizabeth Perry Cannon and Helen Adele Whiting (New York:
E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., 1938. Pp. xiii, 95). This little book
"is intended to serve as a social studies reader for pupils in the
elementary level in small rural schools." Professor Mabel Carney
of Columbia University wrote the introduction, and Vernon
Winslow of Tennessee State College made the twenty-nine illus-
trations, ten of which are in color.
