James Melvin Scott's The Missouri Kid chronicles the life of a boy growing up in the Missouri Ozarks during the early 1900s. It's a poignant coming-of-age story during a time long gone. While his parents, who were farmers, didn't have much - very few families did back then -- they provided their children with a rich childhood in an environment surrounded by nature. Scott grew up hunting and fishing in the Ozark Hills, in Missouri's great rivers and magnificent streams.
