    Excellent Civil War History

    This 1909 book is a very fine account of the political and military events in MO from the secession of SC(1860) up to and including the Battle of Pea Ridge, AR, in 1862. The book is especially noteworthy in that it contains a great deal of the contemporary correspondence from the principal military and political leaders on both sides of the conflict.The book is dedicated to "the Union Men of Missouri" and has a definite northern bias which is especially evident in the first chapter which contains an extremely unflattering portrait of pre-war southern society. But the author is relatively even handed throughout the remainder of the book and even seems to develop a grudging respect for Confederate general Sterling Price.My main criticism(and it's a relatively small one) is that the book stops with Pea Ridge since, in the author's words, "the battle for Missouri had been fought and won". Though this is correct, it must be added that Sterling Price again invaded MO... 4/5 rw-chesterfield,MO - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    An excellent 70's southern rock band! You can't go wrong !

    0 4/5 Kim Mandigo (mandigo@net-link.net) (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Best of Missouri (Audio CD) I first listened to this band in the mid to late 70's and really enjoyed it. They sound similiar to many of the southern rock bands of the 70's. I owned the first album (which is long gone now) but this "Best of" is an excellent CD. It is missing a few tracks from the first album but is nevertheless great! You can't go wrong with this one if you enjoy southern rock. Has a strong Johnny VanZant influence to it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 25, 1999

    Fantastic Book On Missouri For Both Kids And Adults!

    This book is GREAT! As a school teacher, I'm delighted to have this book in my classroom. As a parent, I'm delighted to have it at home. It's an alphabet book, a poetry book, a textbook, and an art book all in one! Though I have lived in Missouri all my life, I sure learned some new things by reading S is for Show Me. I learned about the Kimmswick Bone Beds where mastodons used to live. I learned that nearly all corncob pipes in the world are made in Washington, MO! I learned about caves, springs, animals, ice cream cones, the Pony Express, the Civil War and so much more. This book should be read over and over because there is so much information that it just can't be absorbed in the initial reading. The illustrations are beautiful. Many of the paintings contain hidden details that my kids love to search for. The poems are fun to read aloud to young children and give them just enough information to spark their curiosity. But each page also has a sidebar of text that provides more... 5/5 Elaine Russell (St. Louis, Missouri) - See all my reviews This review is from: S is for Show Me: A Missouri Alphabet (Discover America State by State) (Hardcover) This book is GREAT!

    Guaranteed to reawaken interest in Missouri adventures

    0 5/5 Ozark Naturalist - See all my reviews This review is from: Hiking Missouri - 2nd Edition (America's Best Day Hiking Series) (Paperback) I was very impressed with the author's first issue of "Hiking Missouri." The observations he made, based on his natural history background, easily oriented the hiker to what was special about the area, why it was special, and where to find it. His book on 102 hikes spread throughout Missouri had surpassed all previous publications by other authors for quality and detail until now. With this new edition, the author not only added 25 more interesting hikes, he also updated the hikes from his original book. This extra effort is extremely important because there is nothing more frustrating than using an outdated book where the information may not be as reliable due to trail changes or closures.My only nit about the book, and it is a small one, is that I wish the publisher had put the state map, with all the trail locations, ahead of the trail chart for a little easier orientation.The author has put a lot of time and effort in producing this definitive hiking guide...

This review is from: Missouri State Flag 3x5 3 x 5 Brand NEW MO US Polyester I did not expect the quality of flag that flies over the capital or even one that is weather resent, but I did expect to receive a flag that possessed some detail to the images that are upon it. The bears are brown pieces of cloth that look like they were cut out with a cookie cutter and then sew on the other colored materials. No detail to the bears or anything else. One cheap piece of cloth. Don't waist your money. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 21, 2010
