Ozark Storytelling: They Tell It for the Truth

CINE Golden Eagle Award
"Highly Recommended. One of the oldest forms of entertainment is celebrated in this documentary. Myths, legends, and gossip come alive in the mouths of gifted storytellers. It also serves a practical purpose, keeping tradition and unwritten history viable. Comedy and honesty mix in the tales of ancestors." -New York Times
The Ozarks in a unique geographic region in the center of the United States, covering much of the southern half of Missouri, as well as a large portion of northwest and North central Arkansas and parts of northeast Oklahoma and southeast Kansas; the culture of this part of the country is unique as well. Many people here can trace their roots back to the early American pioneers and it is no surprise that over the years, storytelling has developed into an art form here. This award-winning classic program offers American myths, legends, and just tall-tales by some of the most earthy, down-home storytellers you will ever meet. Viewers will not only get a kick out of the humor that comes from the "truth" being told, but also will delight in the honest, warm portraits of the people telling the stories.
