These Ozarks Hills

The first Friday of every month at 7:30 a.m.

Join us for a monthly radio essay by longtime Ozarks storyteller Marideth Sisco, in which she looks at the unique traditions and traits of this region we call home.

In this installment of our series, Marideth Sisco speaks to us from her farm north of West Plains. She tells us more about her family history and shares several Ozarks stories.

KSMU's new monthly series "These Ozarks Hills" will feature stories about people and places in the Ozarks collected and presented by long-time journalist Marideth Sisco. Over a 20 year span, she worked as a reporter for the West Plains newspaper "The Quill." To begin our series, KSMU's Missy Shelton spoke with Marideth about her own history in the Ozarks and the stories she loves to tell.

Marideth Sisco grew up in Barry County.
