  • The Ozark Society, in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service, has produced a series of new Arkansas Wilderness maps. These GPS friendly maps use UTM grids and the standard topo scale of 1:24,000. The Ozark Highland Trail and private inholdings are very clearly marked and valuable contact information and Leave No Trace camping tips are included. The maps feature the photography of Tim Ernst. For the first time, an entire wilderness area can be viewed on one map.
  • Still on the Hill builds on their reputation as ‘ambassadors of the Ozarks’ with this collection of story songs of the Buffalo River. The river was scheduled to be dammed in the late 60s but a state-wide uprising prevented this fate and it became our nation’s first historic river--a National Park to flow free for all time. Still a River celebrates this pristine river and its rich treasure trove of stories in the form of song. This folk duo comprised of Kelly and Donna Mulhollan have deep Ozark roots and both are powerful instrumentalists, vocalists, and songwriters. They have been recognized by the State of Arkansas for their work and received the Governor’s Folk Life Award in 2009. This project was funded by the Buffalo River Watershed Alliance, the Ozark Society, and the community of NW Arkansas. Release Date: 2016

    Under the auspices of the 1938 Flood Control Act, the U.S. Corps of Engineers began to pursue an aggressive dam-building campaign. A grateful public generally lauded their efforts, but when they turned their attention to Arkansas’s Buffalo River, the vocal opposition their proposed projects generated dumbfounded them. Never before had anyone challenged the Corps’ assumption that damming a river was an improvement. Led by Neil Compton, a physician in Bentonville, Arkansas, a group of area conservationists formed the Ozark Society to join the battle for the Buffalo. This book is the account of this decade-long struggle that drew in such political figures as U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, Senator J. William Fulbright, and Governor Orval Faubus. The battle finally ended in 1972 with President Richard Nixon’s designation of the Buffalo as the first national river. Drawing on hundreds of personal letters, photographs, maps, newspaper articles, and reminiscences, Compton’s lively book details the trials, gains, setbacks, and ultimate triumph in one of the first major skirmishes between environmentalists and developers.
