Vintage Thingie Thursday -Vintage Book - Shepherd of the Hills
Going to try to get back in the swing of blogging more often.  Today joining Suzanne for VTT.

When I was around 11 or 12 my Aunt Doris and Uncle Bill lived in the same town as us.  She was a book LOVER and read 2 or 3 books at a time.

Her favorite place to take me was "MACY'S ON TRACY'".  It was actually a big Salvation Army store on Tracy street in downtown Kansas City, Mo.

One day we found this great old book, printed in 1907.  "Shepherd of the Hills".  If you're not familiar with it, it is the true story of living in the Ozark hills of southern Missouri- Mutton hollow.  The land is in what is now Branson Missouri,  Branson has created a whole park where an outside theater production takes place and tours of all the old farm buildings. 

Aunt Doris proudly bought me this copy.  I love it and it brings fond memories of her.

Hope you have fun with all you're Vintage things.

Ann, you brought back a lot of nice memories for me today. My husband and I visited this place on many occasions and loved it. In fact, I have pictures of us around there. That is a great book on the area.

I saw the show on a trip to Branson. Golly, that was a long time ago. I need to go back.

I love Branson, Lake of the Ozarks, and all of that area. Shepherd of the Hills is one of my all time favorite books. It is such a sweet and simple story.
