I've really enjoyed watching and learning about my heritage here in the Ozarks, since I have to admit-I have some deep hillbilly roots! If you're interested in learning about our unique culture and area, this film is very well put together. There is a sterotype of the Ozarks with our shows making fun of the Hillbilly, which I never quite agreed with. I'd recommend watching this to experience some interesting history and good Ozarks storytelling. Enjoy!
