Missouri—from the gateway arch in St. Louis to the Pony Express stables in St. Joseph, from the Ozarks of the south to the rolling, corn-studded hills of the north—is the subject of this comprehensive geography. Dr. Rafferty brings together a wealth of information about Missouri's resources and people, tracing the theme of persistence versus change
