Also available is Ozarks History: Examining An American Culture

I’ve taken a lot of courses in my lifetime and was just thinking how I was actually glad to be done with school.  I never thought I’d say that, as I love learning new things.  Some of my favorite courses were author specific, and Laura Ingalls Wilder is one of my favorites.  I live not far from where the books were written and have made several trips to the homestead and burial sites.  I am enrolled in this course and am SO excited about it!!!
