Most of the secondary sources we have found are going to give us a better understanding of the developing tourist industry in the Ozarks during the twentieth century. That being said, I hope to add a few more sources to this list after visiting the McDonald County Historical Society this coming week. Lynn Tatum, the head of the society, has told me about a few other researchers on the movement and I hope to speak with them and access a few of their works in the coming week.
