Overview Way back in the Ozark Mountain lies Newton County, Arkansas, where you'll still hear stories of a boy who roamed the hills and hollers fifty years ago. A boy they called "Ozark Monk." The world he grew up in is fading away. Gone is the one-room school. Gone is the daddy who was a champion coon hunter. Gone is the momma who loved him. Feel the splash of cold creek water and catch the scent of virgin forests as you meander through this timeless tale of a boy and his animals. Journey along with Monk and his critters; their antics and mishaps will keep you laughing, and sometimes crying, until you turn the last page.
Publishers Description The story of Howard "Ozark Monk" Hefley and the critters who roam the hills and hollers with him in the Ozark Mountains gives new meaning to the phrase "man's best friend." Young Monk communes with nature to the degree that his closest pals--a cur dog named Danny Boy, a pet racoon named Joe, and a tame black snake called Curly--are his permanent appendages. They go on fishing expeditions, to basketball games, and even to his one-room schoolhouse, much to the dismay of some adults around him. The antics and mishaps of boy and beast will keep readers laughing and sometimes crying until the last page is turned. Even Howard's nickname, "Monk," handed him because of his monkey-like ability to skinny up a tree, connotes his identity with the animal world as he grows up in Newton County, Arkansas. Among his stories, include, wedging himself in a hollow tree and almost getting eaten alive by black ants, only to be rescued by mean 'ole Hobert Criner, on whom he has just played a horrendously dirty trick. He tells of stuffing a skunk in the principal's desk, stinking up the school and of the time when pint-sized Curly becomes a champion squirrel hunter, and much, much more. Tagged the "Huck Finn of the Ozarks," Monk teams up with his brother James Carl, author of Way Back in the Hills and Way Back When, in this hilarious, heartwarming story of a boy, his 'coon, and his dog.

Reviews - What do customers think about Way back in the Ozarks (Book 1) (Country Classic)?
An Awesome Book! Highly Recommended Christian Reading. Oct 17, 2007
This book is unique, factual and very well written. Remember Me provides inspirational and enlightening insight into the true meaning of The Holy Eucharist, so often glossed over or deeply buried in religious praxis. I highly recommend this book to Christians of all denominations and affiliations.
A refreshing new look at the Holy Communion Ordinance. Sep 30, 2007
Having attended church faithfully all of my life and participated in the Communion services as offered, it was a mind-awakening process of the true meaning of this Holy Ordinance after reading these devotions and hearing them presented in our local assembly. These devotions should be part of every born-again believer's library.
Good country time Jun 30, 2001
If you like coon hunting, dogs and trouble, you'll love this book about a boy that has a hunting dog and a racoon. Set in the Ozarks in a town called Judy during the second world war, it a great book about life trials and growing up. I recommend this reasd to everyone.
