The Taming of Ozark Rednecks by Loyd Mitchell Jun 23, 2007
When we hear stories of shootings, death threats, and making moonshine, the Summersville, Missouri area probably doesn't come to mind for most of us living here. But according to this book by a former law enforcement officer, it was a different town in the 1960-70's. A tavern in a town that was already without adequate law enforcement only added to the quandary, as reported in "The Taming of Ozark Rednecks: The Recollections of Texas County Deputy Sheriff and City of Summersville Marshal" by Loyd L. Mitchell. Chapter titles such as Summersville Incidents, One Versus Three, A Hartshorn Incident, The Summersville Tavern, Murder In Shannon County, and others make this an interesting as well as a historical read. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to read the "real thing", not hyped-up fiction. He was there, and Mitchell tells it like it was.
