Ozarks Tonight: Pearl Spurlock

Ozarks Tonight

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — It wasn’t long after “The Shepherd of the Hills” hit shelves in 1907 that people from across the country came to the Ozarks to explore.

Pearl Spurlock was often there to greet them.

With a taxi for the tour, Spurlock gave hundreds of visitors a glimpse at life in White River country.

The author of Ozarks Alive, Kaitlyn McConnell, explores the path Spurlock paved, not only for women but for tourism in the Ozarks.
