Roadside History of Arkansas
Roadside History
of Arkansas

Alan C. Paulson

Roadside History of Arkansas, by Alan C. Paulson. 406 pages. Mountain Press Publishing Company (May 1, 1998) Roadside History of Arkansas explores how the Land of Opportunity went from success to tragedy and, finally, to hope restored. The narrative is enhanced by historical photographs and several easy-to-read maps that help visitors and residents understand what happened where and when.

Readers will learn about Hernando de Soto's exploration of the Mississippi River, the grief of Native Americans forced to march west on the Trail of Tears, the humor and heroism of Davy Crockett, and Bill Clinton's rise to America's highest office.

Organized around five regions--the Delta, or Mississippi Alluvial Plain, in the eastern lowlands; the Coastal Plain, which extends south through Texas; the Arkansas River Valley, slicing through the state's two highlands; the Ouachitas, the west central highland; and the Ozarks, a northern mountain range older than the Rockies--this roadside history explores the forces that drove the ebb and flow of Arkansas's past.
