Shadow of the Mountain is a story of people; the hard-working, fiercely independent, and self-sufficient people that settled and survived on the rugged slopes and rocky valleys of the mountains of the Arkansas River region. Dominated by Mount Magazine, the highest peak between the Rockies and Appalachians, these hills and valleys were settled by a hardy mixture of Scotch-Irish, German Catholic, former slaves, and others who developed a unique culture all their own. Explore the superstitions and myths of the mountain people, hear first-hand accounts of the Civil War in Arkansas, read poetry of the Hermit Poet, discover the history of Magazine Mountains parks, and laugh and cry through stories told by and about these people who are the “backbone” of America. Native to the region, Arkansas author Curtis Varnell shares the history of Arkansas through the lives of real people; the people living in the Shadow of the Mountain.
