More than thirty years have passed since poet Miller Williams compiled his anthology Ozark, Ozark: A Hillside Reader, but time has not whittled away the talent of writers living in or native to the Ozarks. Yonder Mountain, inspired by Williams's collection, remains rooted in the literary legacy of the Ozarks while reflecting the diversity and change of the region. Readers will find fresh, creative, honest voices profoundly influenced by the landscape and culture of the Ozark Mountains. Poets, novelists, columnists, and historians are represented--Donald Harington, Sara Burge, Marcus Cafagna, Art Homer, Pattiann Rogers, Miller Williams, Roy Reed, Dan Woodrell, and more.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Yonder Mountain is a must-read for anyone interested in the Ozarks. It also stands as a model for how regional literature can tell local stories that appeal to and say more to us about the broader human condition--beyond place and regionalism."

--J. Blake Perkins in Arkansas Review: A Journal of Delta Studies, December 2013
"An anthology with Ozarks in the title conjures up images of romantic tales and poetry that depict the pastoral lifestyle of the hills, but from the opening pages to the final story of this brilliantly put-together collection, the reader is made aware that these Ozark authors have realized their once-unique culture is threatened. Loss and death hover over the hickory trees, cemeteries sprout on abandoned farmland and in deserted towns, and displaced Ozark inhabitants have become alienated to the point of paralysis. "Yonder Mountain" is a stunning example of how authors selected from one specific region can represent the pain and confusion, the inexorable changes that typify all of contemporary America."

--Pat Carr, author of "The Death of a Confederate Colonel: Civil War Stories" and a "Novella" and "One Page at a Time: On a Writing Life"
