    August 21, 2019


    I think he’s got it loose!!! Show it in
    the light. Back up a bit. not that good, no I’m not focused on it yet hold still didn’t I didn’t I hello YouTube!!!!! We’re on our way to a
    creek spot that runs off or perpendicular to a old railroad track
    that has a limestone or chalk and you can find iron pyrite there in the creek So, we’re on the IRON PYRITE hunt. You canalso find some fossilized sea urchins. urchin remains as well and there may be
    other stuff that we just haven’t found before you i hope you enjoy the the trip
    and hopefully we find something good we got a little friend here this guy we
    got down here little Terrapin hope she doesn’t mind or he I’m gonna pick her up
    to show y’all flat did you just kick that loose live
    fine look at that he got an insulator any
    damage on it you can tell ya it’s one of the insulators from the old tear
    telegraph lines or electricity lines that would run right next to the to the
    railroad pretty cool son i’m pretty sure that your first insulator hole 12 fine usually we just find broken pieces and
    were just ignoring her the whole time that you set a live mine I was like I was about ready to jump and
    duck and take cover doesn’t want to focus on it look at that
    mark right there in the middle something try to get to her yeah what we used to call these box turtles
    growing up it’s a Terrapin tortoise relative all right well maybe we’ll find some
    more lab finds and bring you along here’s something that you can and it
    this is this a railroad track right here all of its been donated to like a
    non-for-profit a railway now sorry at railway that runs along you know about a
    hundred and something miles and a lot of it in the town areas they’ve already
    converted into active course walking and bicycle trails that these are just the
    the plates and the parts to their to the railroad tracks that would hold it down
    and everything else there kicked off here to the side we might if we come back by this way to
    pick these up and I take him home we’ll see so these things might come in pairs got
    an insulator right there in the dirt and over there is another box turtle eric erickson so these guys are in a
    shaded area out of the Sun right here we found an insulator down in the dirt
    all right that breaking it let’s see if you can
    get it out I do a twisting motion if I was you I wouldn’t just so close to the
    rock at first try to just twist it out so really good one nice condition
    awesome and I don’t know if I’ve seen this style from this area I’m sure I’ve seen it before like enough
    in a flea market or something pretty cool to find all right show him guys very cool this is how you find most of the
    insulators along here just in pieces and pieces like that but he put together one
    of them for different pieces but not worth hauling out just to show you and
    then I picked up those two roads spike in a road bolt and then another thing
    that you’ll find along here is a slag and I think that that was being hauled
    by the railroad cars you know away from either an iron for finding place or or
    it could have been you know they could have been extracting some other type
    anyway this is just the slag or the flux there on top that came off and they
    would haul it away pretty cool all right we made it here where the
    railroad track crosses the creek and we’re going to walk up this Creek and on
    up there about a quarter to a half a mile is where you can find the the fold
    gold what time is it son that means it took us 55 minutes to get
    here all right let’s go right there is the chalk or limestone bed that we’re
    going to encounter on up ahead right here it’s just that our feet
    though the head will be able to dig into it and if we find some good all right all right here we are i can click it and we go This Is It this
    is the wall of fools gold already some and over here there’s a better example
    is a bit more sure you see that one to the left of it also some up here shadow and you can see
    all the facets of it that you can make it a little bit we have to clean some of
    it up and just show it to you later tell me again you’ve got to look for it and busted out
    as well like we got one right here i can’t tell
    if it’s starting to rust a lot of times at these weather too much they will rust you got to really keep them fresh all
    the way around out of the out of the rock I can do this without question this one
    open some of it ought to be good anyway and this was already starting to rust
    some easy they’ll be yellow wish to greenish it’s got a lot of red and brown
    going on so well oh here’s what I did you think it looks
    a little bit better back looking good yeah how well can see the glitter on that
    it’s not showing up on the camera though oh yeah they’re be golden in their heels
    small them all over there’s gonna be hard to pick out there aren’t they looks like this one right there really another one right there you gotta look for it and find your best
    piece probably come to and break out some of this to break out some of this
    and see what we can uncover underneath it and then also right here and these
    are all fossil shells mixed up in it these are all broken up but that I want
    found a real big sea urchin that was hole for the most part there’s a piece right there right there
    have been working this whole a bigger chunk right there to try to make it easy
    and get it that one and it’s about to come out it’s about to come out leeches yeah I don’t go swimming in it I
    wouldn’t advise it it is that piece try and clean it up here in just a
    second all right don’t let me be there a Custer
    single piece gonna try but we’ll come back to you later not to get all right yeah impatient to get impatient to get what
    you deserve yeah yeah bonus points for anybody that can tell
    me what this tool is it is using this made for normally used for we had loaned
    out our our Rock kik we didn’t have it with us to bring on this trip yeah yeah yeah yeah unable to break it out yet big enough
    you don’t want to break it out you might break it into pieces yeah yeah yeah yeah all right it’s hot out here we’ve been
    sweating I think it’s time for a snack would you like some jelly beans sugar
    sweet jelly bean you have clean hands you know that your
    hands are you working hard or hardly working you know some jelly beans after head back yeah hmm so this is not a trash but this is
    actually different little creature a worm that has a bunch of trash makes a
    little sack and it apparently fell off the street spot until it’s trying to
    crawl its way back up not having an easy time and since this one is a harmful
    when we let them squish it once we get off camera so i was hammered for power
    and I hit this one and I’m keeping it for two different reasons one is to keep
    it as a learning lesson never get impatient i was kind of trying to hurry
    up and I broke it the second reason is because it’s a
    really good example of the inside of pyrite haha its real silver it’s silvery and it’s shiny I like so this may be the last nice
    piece that I pull out was busting it off to get it that piece and it revealed
    that piece underneath there someone to work on it and see what comes from it hopefully a nice one so there’s the
    mining site right there and those are my nuggets and I’ve got some more that I broke off
    guard at the beginning that i had my son kind of cleaning up a bunch of different
    pieces they’re small stuff nothing big but we go cluster of things
    all all up in there pretty cool so there’s mine and my oldest nuggets and
    then inside of here is my number two’s nuggets and it’s hot we spent about all the time that we can
    so we are going to call it a day shall come here that educators are sending us
    on our way they’re saying bye pretty good fun actually I think we did
    better than what we were expecting I was hoping for maybe one big fresh
    nugget we found one or two big weathered nuggets but overall good stuff what
    those insulators thank you so much for watching you have
    a good one so the whole time we’ve been here this
    tree right here has been keeping watch over it anybody know what that is I want to be able to get close enough
    for you to see anybody have any ideas the buckeye may come back later and
    gathers come up if we are sold in life here and made a few dollars on it was
    just something fun to do because we already up here on the in the creek all right again you’ll have a good one
    wow wow we found the most rare thing ever an
    albino buckeye look at that that is a rare albino buckeye crazy thanks to be worth at least five more
    dollars to face either that or it’s just not mature yet you’ll get a couple weeks to go take
    care now

    A Portrait of the Ozarks Part I – Shannon County: Home

    August 15, 2019


    (dulcimer music) – James, my grandson, he come up. He’d stood around me
    for a long time there. He’s a little bit shy and don’t talk much. He said, “Grandpa.” He said, “I’ve got two whittlin’ sticks.” I said, “You have?” “Yeah.” I said, “One for me?” He said, “Yeah, and one for you.” Brought out, reached in
    his pocket and brought out two little pieces of cedar. And he got out his knife and
    we stood there and whittled, or sat there and whittled. It was a big thing to him,
    and a big thing to me. Shoot, you boys’ll know
    sometimes you like to whittle with your grandsons. Just like to sit down and
    whittle with ’em. (laughs) And we whittled ’til we– And we cut our shavin’s
    pretty fine to make those good cedar whittlin’ sticks last. We run out of whittlin’
    sticks about the same time. That done me good, to know that he’d think of me in that way. “Grandpa, I brought you a whittlin’ stick. I brought two whittlin’ sticks.” (chuckles) Yeah, I liked that. – [Narrator] This is about
    a place and the people who have made it their home. It’s about a county in the Ozark
    Region of Southern Missouri that hasn’t changed
    quite as fast as the rest of the country. The families who live here
    have been here for generations, and their attachment to the
    place and its traditions is an intimate one. (gentle dulcimer music) The first settlers began
    coming here soon after 1800. They came from the highlands
    of Kentucky and Tennessee and the Carolinas. They built their homes along
    the creeks and in the hollows, wherever they could find
    a fertile piece of land. And they stayed. – [Man] Martha Rebecca Hines
    was born July 10, 1886, at Ink, Missouri. Becky passed away November
    26, 1978, in her home at the age of 92 years,
    four months, and 16 days. She is survived by four
    children, 12 grand– – [Narrator] Becky Hines was
    the county’s oldest resident, a direct descendant of
    the first pioneer family. – I think every heart
    here today is grateful that we have had her so many years. That she’s been such a
    blessing to so many lives. And now that she has gone– – [Narrator] With the passing
    of Becky’s generation, another tie with the past is lost. But in this county, for a while at least, the old values, traditions,
    and kinships endure. It’s 5:30 in the morning. Seaman Rayfield, Edward Piatt,
    and Edward’s nephew, Eugene, are taking their dogs on a fox hunt. – Go on, Bruno. Get outta there. Come here, Wheeler. Alright, go out there and
    see what you can find. – [Narrator] In a lifetime of hunting, Seaman Rayfield has never killed a fox. It’s not part of the sport. – Did you have runnin’ up here then? – No, I seen them boys,
    that’s Jerry’s dog box. – [Seaman] I see there’s a
    dog box sittin’ over here. – [Narrator] These men
    are here simply to listen to their dogs run and to
    visit with each other. – Fog might be a little
    bad to see ’em very far. (dogs barking) They’ve hit. – [Interviewer] How can you
    tell what’s going on out there? – Well, up through the
    years and since I was a boy, why my ears been trained to
    tell you what, to know what that dog was a doin’. And it’s just like watchin’ a horse race. Edward and I both can tell
    ya which dog’s a carryin’ the lead, even they may not be
    50 foot distance between ’em. And we’ll tell ya when
    another dog’s takin’ over. Tell ya the lead and course it’s– – And what dog it is.
    – And what dog it is. We know all our mounts,
    they may be but very little difference in ’em, but
    they’ll be enough difference that we’ll know. – [Interviewer] Why is
    it that dogs mean so much to the men around here? – I can tell ya for me. I can come in from work and be wore out, aggravated and goin’ huntin’
    and have a good race, and come home and be in a good humor. That’s what it is. It shore is. And lots of people, they
    just rely on that dog. A guy that ‘coon hunts,
    he may rely on that dog a lot of it for his livin’. Just the love of animal I guess. – A lot of men may come home,
    or before they get home, they’ll stop at the neighborhood bar, and that’s their thing. They stop at the bar and
    have a few beers and maybe come home and eat and go
    back to the bar that night and spend some time there. Well, I’d a way rather go
    feed my dogs, or get up and go have a fox race, than
    to go to the neighborhood bar, and drink that stuff that they have there. Of course that’s one leverage maybe I hold with my wife. Edward and I will say,
    well, there’s other sports that we can pursue that men have. (laughs) Take your choice. We don’t necessarily say
    that in so many words, but it’s kinda an unwritten law that we’re gonna do somethin’ now. So if you stop us from fox
    huntin’ and put the pressure on hard enough, you never
    can tell what we might break out to doin’. (cross talk)
    (baby jabbering) – [Narrator] Willie and Vella Cutts have been married 59 years. Today is their anniversary celebration. – [Woman] That’s quite an
    accomplishment, wouldn’t you say? – [Man] I’d say so. – When we first started out,
    why it was really hard work, because you didn’t have no
    conveniences and we washed on a board, water in the
    tub, and we milked cows, and we fed the hogs. (chuckles) Everything ya done was hard work. – [Man] She said she don’t
    know ya, so she don’t wanna come up and see ya. – Why, no, I’m not a Cutts, I’m a Julian. (cross talk) – She was young, was with her mother yet, and I got after them and run
    ’em all day and finally run ’em in the corral out here
    this side of Wynona, and set this little thing up,
    wasn’t any bigger’n a rabbit. And I’ve got that horse yet. – [Interviewer] She must
    be about 20 years old? – Oh, she’s just pretty near
    as old as I am. (laughs) But I believe she’s right back here, and I’d like for you to see her. And I bent over a little bit for her. (whistles)
    Come on, Ribbon. (whistles)
    Come, Ribbon. I don’t know whether it’s
    good looks or good treatment. I don’t never have to wait
    for my horse nor my cows. There’s two little calves. (whistles)
    Come, Ribbon. – [Narrator] Willie came to
    this farm with his father when he was nine years old. That was over 70 years ago. – Now if you men’ll just step
    right back there and she’ll come right out this gate
    and we’ll let her come in. Come on, Ribbon. (whistles) – [Narrator] Willie Cutts
    is a prosperous farmer. Yet each spring he still
    prefers to work his garden with his favorite horse, Ribbon. – [Interviewer] How come
    you still plow with a horse? – I wanna do a good job. Right here’s what I plow with. My double shovel’s layin’ over yonder. Well, the woman says for
    me to show you my hog, and I sure wanna do that. Come out here. You know a feller’s got to know his hogs to go in there with that. That pig was give to me. My neighbor up here, he sold
    some pigs, and he wanted me to haul ’em all. I didn’t charge him anything. I was wantin’ to buy a little
    old pig for a slop pig. He says, I’ll just give ya one. I’ve just owned it a week now. But now the next time you
    come back, if it’s a livin’, it won’t look like that. – [Interviewer] What’s going on here? What’s happening, what are you making? – Oh, we’re just buildin’ a brush arbor. – [Interviewer] Where did
    the cuts for the brush arbor come in, do you know? – Oh goodness. Dad, did they have brush arbors
    when you was a little boy? He’s 81. (laughs) I don’t know, I guess they’ve
    always had brush arbors in this country. Well, I suppose actually,
    all they ever had is church. They just gather together and
    they just make ’em a shade. Then usually in the spring
    and then about winter maybe they had enough
    congregation to build a church, or move inside. – [Interviewer] Is it
    like the church service? – We don’t have a program. We just kinda get together
    and start singin’ songs. We’re even lettin’ God do the thing. We just start singin’
    songs and praisin’ God, and there may be a half a
    dozen of us preach one night. I don’t worry about who’s gonna preach, because I always get my
    15 cents worth in anyway. I get up and– We do that. We believe in the freedom
    of the Spirit and letting everybody take part. People will come to a brush
    arbor that you can’t get into a church house at
    all, because they’ll come and they can sit in their car. God can get ahold of ’em
    in the car just the same. They come to hear the singing
    and the preaching and so on, so forth, and music. God gets ahold of ’em. ♪ Oh I want to see him,
    look upon his face ♪ ♪ Let us sing forever
    on his saving grace ♪ ♪ On the streets of glory
    let me lift my voice ♪ ♪ Cares all past, home at
    last, ever to rejoice ♪ ♪ For the billows rise up high and free ♪ ♪ Then my Lord let’s my
    heart’s spirit take me ♪ ♪ And he leads me gently all
    through this world below ♪ ♪ He’s a real friend to
    me, oh I love him so ♪ ♪ Oh I want to see him,
    look upon his face ♪ ♪ Let us sing forever
    on his saving grace ♪ ♪ On the streets of glory
    let me lift my voice ♪ ♪ Cares all past, home at
    last, ever to rejoice ♪ – [Man] I thank God for
    Brother Monroe, our new preacher just startin’ out. And we wanna get behind him
    100% and pray the power of God down on him, amen. Pray then on him, ’cause he
    can’t preach a lick without the anointing no more than
    any the rest of us can. Lord, when the power of
    God comes down and gets on that ol’ boy, I’ll tell
    ya, he’ll preach us a sermon. Praise God, Brother Monroe. – You know, I’m kinda nervous still maybe. I think when it comes time,
    God give us what to say. You know He kinda enter my mind and
    once, and maybe I have studied the Bible today about Job. But you know, they took Job’s cattle and everything else, I reckon. And Job, he kept a
    hangin’ in there though, because he’s serving God. He knew– – [Man] Yes, amen, hallelujah. – [Monroe] And I’ll tell you
    what, that’s what we have done, people, we’re servin’ God too. We gotta catch hope and hang in there too. – [Man] Amen, yes we have. – But it don’t say in the
    Bible it’s gonna be easy. I ain’t never felt any hell,
    but I’ll tell you what, I know that Jesus is comin’. Oh hallelujah, hallelujah. Will you let Jesus take
    care of that pain tonight? Will you let the blood of Jesus
    be a blot on that human sin? Let’s hallelujah if you got Him. Hallelujah. (many people praying) (bullfrogs croaking)
    (crickets chirping) – Just hold this side over here, John. And a little bit faster. Missed him. Meat, meat in the boat. Now John, there’s fish right over there. Right in there, a lot of ’em. I wanna run that one time
    right there, you bet your life. We need to turn it around. Yeah, turn it around. (gentle music) – [Narrator] Since the
    1880s, working in the timber has been the main source
    of income for many people in Shannon County. Today there are about
    100 families that still make their living cutting
    stave bolts for barrels, cord wood for charcoal,
    or like Keith Roberts and Dave Bland, cutting logs
    to supply the dozen or so lumber mills in the area. – When I was a kid, I
    started goin’ with my uncle. He was a loggin’ and I’d go with him. In the time I got big
    enough to do it, why I knew a little bit about what was goin’ on. Then I just started in. It’s pretty independent. We don’t have a boss or anything. We just work as we want to,
    that’s about all the time. It’s mainly, it’s about
    all there is to do right around here, and I like it. I don’t know. Always did like it. Here, whoop, whoop. Whoa now, come back. Whoa, what we got anyhow, 12 of these? – [Interviewer] How long can
    you work a horse like that? – You can work ’em steady
    about a half a day’s about all one can, about
    all he’ll wanna stand. They’ll work longer and still do alright, but it’s a lot easier on ’em, work ’em ’bout half a day. He gets hot while he works,
    but he’ll cool back off again. – [Interview] What about mules? – They’re about the same. – They all work on the same pace. – Well, we had a team of
    mules before I started doin’ the horses. They was about between 20
    and 25 years old, I guess, when we sold ’em. But a mule lives to about
    30, and where a horse lives about 20 or a little better. A mule’s fine where you got
    a lot of different people for workin’ ’em, ’cause a horse
    is pretty, kinda bashful like. They want one man work ’em all the time. They don’t want to change off. And a mule, he don’t care. He ain’t gonna do no more
    than he just has to anyway. You can get more out of a horse. – You can’t possibly get a
    mule to ever learn anything. Mule knows one thing, and
    that’s he’ll bite ya, kick ya, and eat and sleep. That’s all a mule ever did know. – [Interviewer] How come you’re
    still usin’ a horse instead of one of those big tractor skidders? – Fuel’s too high. – They’re quite a bit cheaper. A skidder will get out a lot more stuff, probably four or five times as much. Then a lot of the reason
    everybody’s goin’ to the skidders, it’s gettin’ hard to find
    anybody that can work a horse. – Mule skidder’s just about over with. – It’s somethin’ that it
    takes three or four years to learn it right. – I’m natural born, son,
    what are you talkin’ about? I’m the natural born mule skidder. You got the cream of the crop. – [Son] Yeah, it was a bad year. – Bad on me. – We’ve been thinkin’
    ’bout goin’ to skidder, but I don’t know whether we will or not. Won’t for awhile. – One thing this old thing
    here, you can work a plow garden or you can ride him or
    do anything you want to. And an old skidder when you
    get on him out in the woods, that’s just ’bout as far
    as that thing’s gonna go. Well, you ’bout ready to load these? I guess you know it’s– We’re headin’ for 10:00 right now, accordin’ to my time. – [Son] Well, it’s wrong. – No, my time ain’t wrong. My time’s always right, ’cause
    I’m gettin’ it for the hour. $6 an hour ain’t nothin’. ‘Cause the bean pot don’t get a lot. Gonna get me a pole after ya. (gentle music) – [Narrator] There are 1000
    square miles in Shannon County, most of them covered with timber. There are two rivers, and
    hundreds of creeks, springs, hills and hollows, many with
    the names of families that once lived nearby. Like much of the Ozarks,
    it’s a rugged land, easier to go around than to cross. So for most of its
    history, it was isolated from the main stream of American life. But in the 1880s, that
    isolation was interrupted by a 40-year timber boon
    that left these hills barren for a generation. It began with the expansion
    of the nation’s railroads and their need for millions of cross ties. The need was for oak trees
    and men skill with an ax. And Shannon County had both. Tie hacking, rafting and hauling
    were the first wage-paying jobs most of the men had ever had. And for the first time, people
    began to have cash to spend. Then came the sawmills, and
    more jobs, and more cash, and brass bands, and baseball
    teams, and the company stores. (festive music) With this new prosperity came new people. The population swelled from 3000 to 15000. New communities sprang up with names like Ink and Rat and Desolate. One of the largest grew up along
    the creek known as Blair’s. – [Resident] There used to
    be oodles of people lived on Blair Creek here
    (mumbles) on Blair’s Creek. – Were you born on this
    place or on down the creek? – I was born down here
    at the Dillard place, five or six miles south
    right down Blair’s Creek. – [Interviewer] Used to
    work in the timber up here? – Worked in timber all my life, yeah. Born and raised right here in the timber. I’s in here when ol’ S. J.
    Bunker came in and pulled the first virgin timber
    out of Blair’s Creek. That’s been 72 years ago. You think you could use one? (laughs) – [Man Holding Ax] Left
    handed one, ain’t it? – [Old Man] Yeah, left handed. – [Man Holding Ax] Yeah,
    right hand the bevel’s on this side. Yeah, you got quite a broadax there. – Old Joe wanted to buy it and I said, I don’t wanna sell it. So I got it yet. You’re tired when you pull it for 18 ties. I used to work hard. I never stopped a day ’til
    after dark when I’s young. I worked, enjoyed it. I used to head ‘fore I looked,
    but I don’t do that no more. My eyes have got too bad the glamour. Old age comes on, and you’ve
    had sweat in your eyes where you work in the
    hay and you’ve hewed ties and worked hard. The eyesight decays away, as
    you toss along with old age. The way I figure it, if I’m right. (laughs) – [Man] The Lord bless the heart of men. – I used to be stout, but I
    ain’t got the strength no more. You ever split any pine to go a’fishin’? Now you set that afire and it’ll burn. (gentle music) – [Narrator] By the
    early ’20s, the big mills had sawed out. Jobs became scarce, and money was tight. Many families followed the
    mills to the Pacific Northwest. But most remained. To earn a living, a man had few choices: go back to farming, hack
    ties, or if he was literate, he could teach school. – Did I ever tell you how
    I got my first school, from a tie hacker? Rural schools were
    political in getting them. You had to go get your own school. There was three board members
    in each school district, and they hired you according
    to maybe whether they liked you or not, whether they knew
    your father or for a lot of reasons other than whether you was a good school teacher or not. Because I just graduated
    from high school when I first went out and made this application. I’d taken the state teacher’s
    exam right outta high school. I had a good friend, Hubert
    Wright, that lived down in Horner School District down on Rocky, and he was a school board member. And I thought my chances
    might be pretty good, so I went down to talk to Hubert. He said, well, Everett
    Williams is the other director, but said now he’ll be
    for a certain teacher, I don’t remember who it was. There’s one elected every
    year, and said we’ll have to put in a new board
    member that’ll be for you. It’s the only chance you
    have of gettin’ this school. I said, well, Alva Norris
    is a good friend of mine. He’s a fox hunter and I was
    a fox hunter, and my dad was. So I went and talked to Alva
    and he said, yeah, I’ll serve and be for you. So it was left up to me then
    to go around over the community and see the people and get
    ’em to come to the election, and put Alva Norris in. Of course, when I started to campaign, and the other teacher started
    to campaign for a director to get elected, it would be for them or go with Everett Williams. I was ridin’ a good saddle
    horse and I could make the community pretty easy. I went to one fella’s house
    to see him, to get him to come and vote, and this was
    runnin’ right up to the night of the election. It was gonna be the next day,
    and it looked awful close. I couldn’t find this
    fella, and someone told me he was back in, over on Mud Springs Holler hackin’ ties and camped away. Been over there all winter. So I went over and found him that night. He was there at his tent, and
    he had about six children. This is around just a canvas tent. He’d been there all winter hackin’ ties. And I asked him if he’d
    come over to the meeting, election next day, and he
    said, no, I can’t do that. Said I’ve got six kids
    here to make a livin’ for. He said, I have to work
    every day to make a livin’. And I said, well, what
    are you makin’ a day? He said, well, I’ve already
    got the tie sticks cut and my woman and I cut ’em yesterday. And he said, we’ll hack ’em
    out tomorrow, or I will, and said, I can hack about
    15 ties in a day’s time and I get 10 cents a stick for ’em. And he said, that’s a dollar and a 1/2. Well, I don’t know where
    I got the dollar and 1/2, but I did have one, and
    I said, well now, Oliver, if you’ll come and
    vote, you and your wife, why I’ll pay ya for a day’s work. And he said, I’d sure rather
    come to vote as to hack ties a day, and he did. Well, the next day, they
    put him in as chairman of the meeting, the election. And chairman don’t get
    a vote, and I thought well I wasted my dollar and 1/2. But he come up and that vote was tied, and Oliver had to untie the
    vote, and he voted for Alva, Alva Norris, and I got
    my first school that way. There was 46 people
    enrolled that first day. There was a few of them older than I was, and through the year I used
    to laugh that a salesman would come there or something. The only way they could tell
    the teacher from the students, since some of ’em was older
    than me, I had shoes on. (gentle music) – [Narrator] There used to be
    over 100 one-room schoolhouses in Shannon County. Now there are none. (gentle music) During the late ’40s, after the Depression and after the war, many
    families left for the cities in search of jobs. And in the ’50s, when
    electricity was brought into the county, it
    came only to the towns. So the small, scattered
    communities gradually died, leaving only quaint
    place names and memories of what used to be home. And on Blair’s Creek,
    only Henry Gore remains. – [Man] Peaceful out here. – [Henry] Yes, it is. – [Man] Used to have a lot
    of square dances on Blair? – Quite a few, yeah, that used to be one of our old pastimes, old square dance. – Did you dance all night? – Yeah, we’d dance all night. – Did you used to call the sets? – Never did call, I danced. And after we got to drinkin’,
    I drank whiskey and danced. (laughs) – [Interviewer] How ’bout jig dancin’? Would they jig dance on Blair? – Oh yeah, Paul Bales used
    to be in here from Eminence. You saw Paul? – Oh yeah, I knew Paul. – Yeah, old Tom Bamble
    raised on Dickens Valley, cross county on Logan. He used to, him and Paul Bales,
    used to be the dancin’est guys I ever looked at. (laughs) Paul Bales, he was a case, wasn’t he? – [Man] You was a tellin’ me
    last Friday about the ol’ boy that come in from Tennessee
    that didn’t nobody used to make whiskey or anything. Tell me again about that. – That was Arthur Keith,
    he come from Tennessee to this country, and showed
    us how to make liquor. It goes into cold water and condenses, as you boilt it in the tank. Some of you might’ve saw
    it operate, I don’t know. – [Interviewer] People
    here didn’t make whiskey before he came in? – No, they didn’t know how. He come in and showed ’em. That was back when I was 23 year old. Come from Tennessee, Arthur Keith. He married across yon Logan. Married Steve Ferguson’s
    girl on Logan’s Creek. Red-headed man, Arthur Keith,
    I’d say he’s 35 when he came here from Tennessee. Learned the world how to make liquor. (chuckles) We need to do some leaves
    at the house and leaves are all fallin’ now,
    but that’s real water. – [Interviewer] Tell me
    about the spring. Does it run year ’round? – Yeah. I reckon I’ve been, soon be here 74 year, and I never saw it dry. – [Interviewer] You got
    any water in your house? – No. No, it’s just 18 foot to the door, and I didn’t want no water
    in the house. (chuckles) – [Interviewer] People still
    pretty friendly around here? – Well, yeah. There ain’t very many of
    us to be friendly. (laughs) They’re scarce. We used to have a big
    population of people here. But they’re gone now. – [Man] You must be the
    keeper of Blair’s Creek, the last one left. – Yeah, I never did marry
    and stayed with my parents. They’ve passed away, so I’m just yet here. I ain’t satisfied, but– this is my home, you’ve got to be satisfied. (puppies yelping) – [Interviewer] Their eyes
    aren’t even open yet, are they? – No, they come two
    nights before Halloween. I never ordered those dogs. But the Lord wanted me
    to have ’em and I guess, I guess it’s alright. Did any of you ever try a bachelor’s life? I never did marry. I never did think I wanted to marry. I stayed with my parents
    ’til they passed away. – [Interviewer] Do you
    regret that at all now? – Well, a man mighta lived a
    better life if he’d a married. – [Interviewer] Where
    will you be buried, Henry? – On Big Creek across here. You’ve been on Big Creek? Over here at the Turner graveyard. My parents are buried over there. Lee Gore and Elizabeth. Dad was 87 and seven days when he died, and Mother’s 86 and six days. Of course, I may not make that many years. And if I don’t, it’ll be alright,
    ’cause we owe death’s debt and we’ll pay it. (chuckles) – I’ll bring ya one the next time I come. – I’d rather pay you for that light now, it cost you something. I’d rather pay ya if you’ll take it. – You let that light burn
    when ya need a light, or you just turn it on. Then the other one goes
    dead, we’ll go and get a battery and then
    you’ll always have one. – Alright.
    – We’ll get it, and it runs out and you
    don’t have it that away, well you’ll have light. – I thank you a whole lot. – And you’re welcome. And we really appreciate ya. – And come back, boys,
    everyone of you when you can. – [Man] We’ll sure try to do it. (bluegrass music) – [Narrator] Today, 8000
    people live in Shannon County. There are three towns, the
    largest has a population of 850. This is Eminence, the
    county seat, population 630. The county has no doctors, no
    dentists, no shopping centers, no bowling alleys, no theaters. There is one county
    newspaper, The Current Wave. It’s been published since the
    1870s, and its motto is, “Shannon County first,
    the world afterward.” – Hear ye, hear ye. Shannon County Magistrate
    Court is now in session. With the Honorable Judge Greene presiding. Thank you and please be seated. – Let’s see, first case
    is State versus Wood. That goes over, doesn’t it? – Yes, sir. – I was 79 years old when
    I come on to the bench. State versus Mike Kernel. Grimet, grivet? – Mr. Benedict. – So I’d had the world of
    experience with people, and being chairman of the
    Ration Board during the war, I had met everybody in
    the county, I think. Most of them had cussed me. We can take it up after awhile. He might show up. But I doubt it. People are clannish in
    this county to an extent, often a very large extent. They like to know that
    their public officials are either native sons or have
    been accepted by the people that they regard as
    leaders in the community. They don’t like interlopers. I recall an instance, a
    case was filed against two prominent citizens, of
    Carter and Shannon County, on a contract for the sale
    of staves, barrel staves. There was no question about the evidence. But they had a very astute
    attorney from St. Louis representing the plaintiff. And after he had made his
    opening statements to the jury, he just wilted because
    he could see that he, being a foreigner, as the
    old timers would call him, he wasn’t going to impress
    that jury one whit, and of course, they
    didn’t even leave the box ’til they returned the
    verdict for the defendants. And the defendants didn’t
    have a leg to stand on, actually at law. And it’s well known among
    the legal fraternity that a country lawyer’s got
    no business trying a case in the city, and a city
    lawyer’s got no business trying a case in the country,
    because they don’t speak the same language someway. We’ll take it up when we
    get back on the bench. – Alright. I think his grandpa can make the bond. You know Mr. Pierce? – Those Pierces are pretty solid people. Who is his grandpa, Roy? Gore. – Doyle Pierce. – Yeah, I know him. He’ll be okay. (fiddle music) – I’s just a little ol’
    farmer, live back up here at Flat Rock. Decided to run for Circuit
    Clerk and Recorder. So I come down here at Eminence and filed. Runnin’ against the fellers named
    Earl Williams and Freeman Powell. That’s where I got my
    schoolin’, my first politics. But I got my bill branded, they beat me. I just laughed and went on about it. So I take a run for sheriff then. Got elected sheriff four years. Then after Hubert Wright
    defeated me in that, why I decided to run for
    presidin’ judge at County Court. So I got elected presidin’
    judge, and I been elected this makes seven terms,
    four year terms, straight. I don’t know whether it’s what
    I done or whether the people just kinda like me. I don’t know what it was. (bluegrass music) – [Interviewer] Both you
    gentlemen been in politics around here a long time. What are campaigns like? – Well, depends on the kind you pick. You can pick a stump
    campaign where there’s thunder and lightning. Or you can bushwhack. Or you just go out and see the people. That’s the best kind. – [Interviewer] Was there
    a lot of speech-makin’ in those days? – Oh yeah, we used to
    have stump campaigns. Boy, them was interestin’. Get to gouge each other a little. Plus some twists. And I’s a little bit of a
    gouger, not bad, just enough to make ’em sweat a little. – I think the sheriff’s race is always the most interesting here. There’s most generally
    several running for sheriff. I remember one race with 14 in it. The first time I ran for office, there was 14 runnin’ for sheriff. – [Interviewer] What party were they? – All Democratic, all on
    the Democratic ticket. – Lot of fun in it. If you let it, it’d
    aggravate ya and worry ya, but some fellas against ya,
    why don’t never treat him, if ya do, try to treat him a little good for the next four year. Nah, don’t quit him,
    don’t let ’em quit ya. If ya wanna really get even
    with ’em, take ’em a poke of little red apples or
    somethin’ and give ’em when they’re fightin’, and that’ll
    win better’n anything you do. (waltz music) (bell tolls) – [Narrator] Memorial Day. (organ music) ♪ There’s a place near to me ♪ ♪ Where I’m longing to be ♪ ♪ With my friends at

    the beginning of a most important season in Shannon
    County: deer season. For about 10 days, timber work
    stops, the schools let out, and most of the families go hunting. These are the Piatts, a close-knit
    clan and one of the most respected families in the county. They live far from any town,
    and spend their lives working and hunting in the timber. Willie and his seven sons
    live for days like this. – I doubt if I’ve got any
    boys can walk as far in a day as I walked and worked. You’ve walked from Arkansas,
    ain’t ya, back and forth? That’s what we used to do, I know you did. – And you walked where?
    – Arkansas. – I walked from just below Jerktail;
    Arkansas in two days, corner of Arkansas. – Walked.
    – Walked. – People didn’t think nothin’
    about walkin’ doggone, just takin’ off and walkin’. – The younger generation
    wouldn’t believe the way people used to hunt here, used to
    take axes, dogs, no gun at all. And they’d go out and they’d
    hunt all day, and they’d bring in more game than most
    people does with guns now. They’d kill rabbits, squirrels,
    possum hunt, coon hunt. – [Interviewer] Why did you
    used to hunt the way you did? – Couldn’t afford shells. Back in the ’30s it was for eatin’. It was hard times here, wasn’t it, Willie? – [Willie] We always had
    a few hogs and cattle. Had our milk and butter
    and hogs to butcher. Still, our meat’d run out,
    you know, we’d just have to kill it in the winter time. Folks didn’t have a deep
    freeze, nothin’ like that. You’d run pretty short
    before butcherin’ time again. – One of them used to hunt and
    had them big ol’ grab hooks you grab fish with, and climb
    a tree and they’d tie them on the end of a pole
    and reach down in a hole and pull a coon out. Boy here, he’s a pretty
    good shot, ain’t he? – [Willie] I guess, you
    can figure it out yourself. (laughs) How many times did ya shoot? – Four. – He woulda hit it but he
    laid his gun over his back and then pulled the trigger. (laughs) Oh shoot, it’s too close to him. – They don’t get too close. (cross talk) – Get too close for you, don’t they? – [Man] Had to been well
    down the road about a quarter when it hit it, he’d a killed it. – It went down there at the
    river somewhere down there by Fish Trap, or right below the cave. – [Man] Did you faint, did you pass out? – [Willie] No, but he thought about it. – His little brother
    done told me he’d missed in seven shots. – Seven? – That’s what he said. – Three times. – Now we heard four.
    – He said seven. – Well, I shot four times. – [Man] Sure he didn’t shoot seven? – He took that after Grandma. (laughs) – [Man] Took that after Grandma, did he? – Well, as I was watchin’ that place and some guy come along, I didn’t know him. I turned and talked to him. – Did you kill her the first shot? – [Hunter] Yeah, sure did. – How close was she to ya? – Oh, ’bout as far as that pig down there.
    The last one down there. – Uncle Bill. Where you gonna hang it at,
    across this limb right here? – We was goin’ home and, I looked out in the woods and there was three standin’ there. It was the biggest one. (cross talk) (banjo music) – [Interviewer] Why do you
    suppose all your boys decided to live pretty close around here? – I don’t know, but they ever leave, they don’t stay gone no time. They like all of us was I guess. I never did like to be
    away from home, never did. Don’t you like to go back to
    your home where you was raised? It’s just nature. I don’t know, it is just nature of people. Brings back memories of
    whenever you was a kid. Times you’ve had, good
    times and the likes of that. When we lived on the river,
    I guarantee that I dream about livin’ down there
    two or three times a year. I sure do, I had the best time,
    I lived the best I ever did in my life. Shucks, didn’t have to work,
    make a crop in the summer. If I wanted to take
    off all winter and hunt, I could do it. Didn’t take no money. Like I say, didn’t have no
    electric, no telephone bill, or no dang payments. I never owned a dang car
    ’til, I guess it’s around 50. It’s sad how much money it takes, but a man ain’t a gonna spend it. It ain’t gonna do him
    no good no how, is it? I’m a lot like Ralph Lucas that a’way. He said if a man had a
    dollar in one hand and a rock in the other, if he didn’t ever
    intend to spend that dollar, wasn’t worth nothin’ to him. And that’s about right. So I would like to have
    a little to put me away whenever I die. Use the rest of it, wouldn’t you? (laughs) Hell, these men don’t
    get a little enjoyment, what’s life worth? It ain’t, is it? – [Interviewer] What do
    you do for enjoyment? – Fish and hunt and like that. Yep, fish and hunt. That’s pretty clean sport. I tell ya, a man if he’s
    a huntin’ or a fishin’, he ain’t gonna get into mud that he oughtn’t to, is he? – [Interviewer] What
    happens if the dogs do get after a wolf? – Well, they’ll follow that
    wolf as far as it goes, and sometimes they go 30 miles. It’s very possible my waiting
    here will be all in vain. They may not come back here ’til tomorrow. – [Interviewer] Your dad
    was tellin’ us that boys always come home, they don’t
    seem to like it away from here. Why is that? – Well, to me, when you
    get off away from here, you don’t really meet anybody
    that’s a friendly guy. I guess one thing, us raised
    here, about all of us, we know everybody. We personally know ’em. Then you get out there,
    you don’t know nobody and they don’t care if
    you know ’em or not, and it’s just so much different. I just don’t care nothin’ about it. – [Interviewer] What kind
    of a frog sticker you got? – That’s a Browning. – [Interviewer] People trade
    a lot of knives around here? – Yeah. Knife tradin’ is a big thing. It isn’t my thing, but a
    lot of people sure like to, they sure like to trade knives. – [Edward] A lot of ’em
    call it “poke knives.” – [Interviewer] What’s that again? – Well, just like, if I take
    my knife outta my pocket and Seaman never seen
    it, and I’d say, well, we’re just poke knives, and
    he’d just reach in a pocket. I’d give him mine, and he’d give me his. Just how it went. We’d never look at the other knife. They do a lot of that. – You won’t get hurt very
    bad, because neither one of the knives will be any good. (laughs) Drop a knife with maybe no blade in it, or just a half of one. (laughs) Gettin’ the better with
    somebody in any trade, that’s a big thing. – [Edward] Kenny Swinney’s the
    fella that’s hard to get ahead of. – Oh, you bet. Kenny Swinney’ll skin ya
    every time ya trade with him. I’ve traded with him lots and got skinned every time I traded him. Traded dogs with him once. He won’t lie to you about
    a dog, but he won’t tell ya all the truth about one. (laughs) That dog can have some qualities– It can have some good qualities
    that you’ll recognize, but he’ll also have some
    qualities that you won’t put up with, that Kenny’ll
    never tell ya anything about it. You just have to find out
    about that after it’s too late, after the trade and after
    you fed the dog for awhile, you’ll find out. Boy, he sure popped it to me a few times. I’d have to go up and stay with
    him a few days to get even. (laughs) – Sook, sook, sook, sook, sook. Hey. (cow moos) Sook, sook, sook, sook, sook. (cow moos) Sook. (gentle music) Don’t look like it did
    when you saw it, does it? – [Interviewer] That’s the same one, huh? – That’s the same one. (gentle music) (bluegrass music)

    NEW RECORD!!! WELL OVER 150 RATS Caught by My Mink and Dogs!!!

    August 13, 2019


    today was a record-breaking day like
    record shattering like blow it out of the water oh my gosh my name is Joseph
    Carter and I am the minke man when I was a senior in high school I started
    learning about the American mink I was told that mink were horrible vicious
    little animals who were impossible to tame challenge accepted
    I’ve been in love with me ever since I get mean from fur farms and give them a
    new life in this new life my mink live as naturally as possible even hunting
    for their dinner the way a wild mink would so come join me on my adventures
    as we learn more about this intense little predator amazing American mink
    now if you’re really wanting to dive into mink and learn the nitty-gritty
    details I would strongly recommend you read my book the new sport of mink
    Andrey if you would like to support us you can buy a shirt or hat or consider
    becoming one of my faithful patrons just go to the links in the description below people often ask me why I prefer to use
    greyhound mixes over terriers that is why I prefer to use greyhound mixes no
    matter how fast their short little legs run no terrier can quickly cover ground
    like a long-legged lurcher that fast black dog is my boss and he’s
    what’s called a bull lurcher he is one-quarter pit bull three-eighths
    greyhounds and three-eighths whipping any dog crossed with the greyhound er
    whippet is termed in lurcher the advantage of using a bowl archer like
    boss is the pit bull helps give him some of the toughness and drive of a terrier
    and also some of the speed of the greyhound this little white dog named Neela is a
    Jack Russell terrier owned by my buddy Matthew he has his own channel called
    Matthews mink Manor we keep Neal on the leash most of the time because she likes
    to dive under the cement when she sees a rat we don’t want to have an accident if
    the cement unexpectedly slipped off the tractor oh just get dogs good girl in the last
    good great there’s just one more that’s still alive back down good girl Neela drop it drop us bus bus the point of your brindle dog is my
    little puppy shurni she’s a Dutch Shepherd and she’s just here to watch
    the older dogs in action she’s only five months old in his far too young to be
    catching rats herself good girl yes yes good girl bucket yes good girl another
    one bucket yes bucket bucket yes good girl bucket bucket yes yes yes yes yes there’s a few
    I don’t know where to go good job Neela Connie was jumping through the air out
    drop out struck out girl good dog okay go ahead summer anything under their players once we
    tried to avoid the rats suffering whenever possible and put them down as
    quickly as we can contrary to what some people would think
    using mink and dogs for pest control is far more humane than the commonly used
    modern methods the squeaks of rats disturb some people but the same people
    take no thought whatsoever for the hours of torment suffered by a poisoned rat
    dying down in its burrow where nobody can see or hear good kupuna gosh oh there’s a bunch right there good job
    Neela good job boss good girl Neela good jobs Oh boss
    no come here come here good boy come here it’s good boy get down Warda cops
    it dogs you’re going under the hay down to the next one yeah your girl
    yes speaker oh please Ganguly okay pretty good start to today huh
    as we continue along moving sections of cement the escaping rats move on to the
    next section eventually congregating in large enough
    numbers that it’s helpful if we start using the mink along with the dogs yeah
    we need to start doing me oh my gosh in order to be as efficient and safe as
    possible we prop the cement up with a railroad
    tie so there’s no risk of it slipping off the tractor we then release the mink
    under the gap created the mink enters the gap and begins catching rats the
    rats who try to escape the mink run into the dogs waiting outside
    typically the mink flushes the rats in a slower and more orderly fashion than
    just lifting the cement with the tractor wood giving the dogs more time to catch
    the fleeing rats yeah good boy yeah good boy this make
    his name spot because he has a little white spot on his chin just like his
    father Rocky he’s a fearless hunter but I like his
    father he’s quite large and so has some obvious difficulty squeezing into tight
    little places good job I’m sorry a job spawn
    good boys get alcohol I ran a good boy we have a but Alfie okay move the
    cameras back good job good job
    there’s one good jobs new watch stop boy boss boy
    boss oh you didn’t bite me I just grabbed
    Kate alive oh my gosh how did I do that you may
    wonder why we lift the cement for their mink instead of just letting them
    squeeze down the rat holes a bunch of rats will sometimes bottle up in the
    dead enemy and the meat wat to sit down there killing them one by one
    which is quite time-consuming when dealing with large numbers of rats it’s
    quite helpful to use the much larger and more powerful buck minigame
    the buck creeks are so large that they typically can’t fit down the Brat
    burrows and so only dummies are embarrassed if we don’t want the cement got okay oh yeah yeah yeah fuck Neil Neil Neil I got one Oh give us good job Neela oh there’s so
    many oh these are all the lies look these are all alive smart leave any next bus bus business good job Neela yeah yeah yeah yeah here let me chase one over there here
    drop this was a really holy no bites none ever does like people
    often wonder about the disease risks involved with catching rats most of the
    diseases people worry about either aren’t typically found in my area or
    aren’t carried by rats at all hantavirus is only carried by a very small handful
    of specific rodent species the deer mouse being the only one in my area the
    plague is not typically carried by the brown rat but is instead carried by the
    black rat which doesn’t live here either rabies is almost never carried by any
    small to medium-sized rodent rats included girl nila leptospirosis or Wiley’s
    disease though very common in wet areas with mild winters is almost unheard of
    here in the high desert of Utah with that being said there’s always
    going to be some risk of disease so my animals and I stay up-to-date on all
    available vaccinations you may wonder what we do at the end of the day with
    over a hundred dead rats and the answer is we either turn it into mink food or
    if possible we sell them to people with pet snakes good job there heads not near
    big enough to be very good job spot back at home my mink are kept in much larger
    and more spacious enclosures they get all kinds of enrichment like branches to
    climb on and pools to swim in and this is just our little transportation method
    for transporting a whole bunch of mink at once good girl good girl this is real yep a real shoes are in
    case we need something I can squeeze in a lot of places yeah pop your bus hey Raven hey Johnny what they told me
    was nice car good job Neela yeah good girl any luck yeah here job Oh this yellow dog is a one-year-old
    Greyhound named Lily Lily is plenty old enough to start hunting but she hasn’t
    mentally matured enough to take any interest yet we brought her along hoping
    that watching the other dogs having fun would eventually make her want to give
    it a try glad I’m wearing gloves I’d like to get

    team to help eradicate the rat infestation the dogs understand that the
    mink are an important part of their pack and that they must respect them at all
    times unfortunately not all of the mink
    understand this and some of the more aggressive ones try and bite their dogs
    to do their best to avoid the teeth of their feisty little hunting
    Connecticut’s good girl hiki sky you did an excellent
    job I did one is still there baby okay Johnny here being such good moral
    support she’s the cheerleader are you to dodge Geneva Tierney’s do such a good job to use to

    foster mother see this one’s actually old enough it’s already can be waned
    he’s fine we’ll just give him soft food but like these little guys they’re
    borderline they need a mother to nurse on and it looks like this is a this one
    this one’s old enough to wean but these little guys in they need a mother oh my
    goodness today was a record-breaking day like
    record shattering like blow it out of the water I cannot believe the luck that
    we had today oh my goodness so happy so Dominque did awesome jobs man they were
    they were knocking him out mama doesn’t like Maggie because she’s helped me
    doctor her a couple times give her shots things like that so she thinks she’s
    about to get a shot so she’s right now she’s on edge and she’s ready to bite
    anyone that touches her anyway so if I get bit that’s why anyway so just
    happiest can be journey that was a great introduction to routing for her as a
    little puppy she did a good job for just a little innocent puppy not doing much
    but bringing rats putting them in the bucket and kind of disappointed in Lilly
    she’s a year old now we were really hoping she’d get started at least a
    little bit today but I don’t think she even knew what we were doing she’s just
    kind of hung out boss and good old Neela man they were they were doing an awesome
    job all-around amazing day so appreciate you guys joining us and just a reminder
    Matthew he wasn’t able to join us today but Matthews mink Manor take it check
    out his channel I’ll put it in the link below but man what a wonderful day and
    look at all these rats all these rats in the cages are ones we caught by hand
    do you believe we caught all of those rats by hand and I only got bit like
    three times it was awesome so anyway thanks for joining us and you
    guys have a great day hey hey getting a bit girl boy so the
    grand total from that ridiculously amazing day of ratting was a hundred and
    eighty eight rats forty of which four babies so the lucky number for those of
    you who are going for the contest for the Hat is a hundred and forty eight
    adult rats or I should say adult and some adult rats because some littles
    adult rats work totally adult so we actually had several people that had
    correct guesses so we’re also gonna have surprises for the runner-ups but the
    first person to guess the right answer of a hundred and forty eight adult and
    some adult rats was Ray Lucassen I’m not sure that’s his real name but that’s a
    screen name didn’t have a real name on there so ray Lacoste send you one
    the next runner-up was Christina followed by Vince or probably goes my
    video if you look at his screen name I’m guessing that’s what he goes by will
    Freeman following this ow Emily H and Paulina yes sorry sorry
    calling they’re not sure to pronounce that so those are the winners the the
    person first person who got it right the sramek Austin he’s gonna of course get

    A Portrait of the Ozarks Part II – Shannon County: Hearts of the Children

    August 11, 2019


    (gentle guitar music) (rooster caws) – [Narrator] Shannon
    County, Southern Missouri, the beginning of a new day. (fire poker clangs) These are the Rectors, Martha and Jim. They will spend their day
    working in the timber. (fire roars) Ray Hicks, he too makes his
    living working the timber, but he’s also the county’s last
    practitioner of a dying art. (metal clangs) – Go on Mac and get that cow! Hurry him. (dog barks) – [Narrator] Freeman Hughes, he’s 83. – [Freeman] Now you get on in there. – [Narrator] Freeman is one of the county’s most successful farmers. (door squeaks) (milk splashes) He is also a strong-minded,
    outspoken citizen. – [Danny] Hello sir, how ya doing? – [Narrator] And running for re-election. – I’m Danny Staples, your
    State Representative. How are you sir? Good to see you. – [Man] That’s how long it’s been. – I thought who you are. – Why sure. Take care of yourself. – [Danny] Hello, there. – Hello, hello. – [Danny] What do you say, fella? – Not much, how are you, man? – Fine, you workin’ hard? – Yeah, pretty hard. – Pretty hard? – Yeah. Not any harder than I have to (chuckles). – Well, hang in there. – Are you working, going to
    work or are you going to vote? – [Man In Brown Jacket] I’m going to work. – Going to work, okay. – Alright, let’s get some canoes. – [Narrator] Windy Smith, like the others, his family has lived here for generations. (boat clatters) Windy was a carpenter
    in St. Louis for awhile before returning home. He now makes his living from the increasing numbers of tourists. – [Woman] Do I have to tap it? (jet hums) – [Narrator] Claude Treeman. – A country airport. – [Narrator] A wealthy
    industrialist from St. Louis and Claude Treeman’s personal jet. Treeman came to hunt and fish and relax, then he brought one of
    his factories with him. – We’re going out over
    Johnny Cooper’s place and then we’ll be back over there later. There’s the Ozarks way. (gentle guitar music) – [Narrator] The Ozarks, one of the most beautiful
    regions of the United States but for three quarters of a century, one of the poorest. (gentle guitar music) Isolated by the hills, the early settlers lived off the land, needing little from the outside world. (gentle guitar music) With the 20th century, industrial timbering came
    in upon a frontier people but the boom times were short-lived and when they were over,
    the people remained, retaining much of their
    old, traditional culture. (gentle guitar music) That culture is still there, quaint now, because
    it’s true to it’s past, a past we once all lived. In these people, we
    can see our old selves. – The way they make a living
    was just so foreign to us, you know, like heating
    with wood or with wood, like Bill knows how to work
    with wood but as far as going out in the woods
    and using mules and, all that to us was something that people did a long time ago, not anymore. It was really a different reality. – We knew that they had a lot to teach us and we went out with that attitude and if you do that anywhere with anybody– – [Narrator] Bill and Betty
    Burns came from Chicago in 1968 to get back to the land. – And we did have an awful lot to learn, ’cause we’re straight out of the city and I thought I knew a little bit about being back in the country but not a thing when it came down to it. – [Narrator] They have built a home and put down roots. (water splashes) – [Boy] Somewhere around 15. – [Man] Michael, what about
    this deer you shot at? (everyone laughs) – [Narrator] Late November, the deer hunt. A rite of autumn in Shannon County. (gun clicks) – [Man] Them things looks drawed up to me, are they done (chuckles)? – [Narrator] The meal today is squirrel. – [Man] Say, Bud, do you want
    a young, roasted one, Bud? – Yeah. – [Man] Alright, try that out there. Charlie in coats and garble, Jimmy all hunted squirrels when we can, just so we’ll be sure to
    have something to eat. Glad you got here in time for squirrel. – It like eatin’ rats. (men laugh) – A lot of new people in this country now, coming and going. You could float this
    river a week at a time and you might see two or three fishermen going with the flow. Now you see 500 a day (laughs). – [Interviewer] You think it’s
    good for the county or bad? – Well, it brings a lot of money in. Of course, the privacy
    that we used to have, we don’t have it anymore like we did then. – [Man] It’s pretty hard to go back to the old times, you know? (metal clangs) – [Narrator] The Rectors are
    one of about 100 families that still make their living
    working in the timber. (metal clangs) – We have worked in the
    woods all of our life, Jimmy and me has. When I was a girl, before
    I was even married, I worked in the woods and
    he’s worked ever since he was about 12 years old and made ties, a huge
    amount with a butt ax. – I (muffled speech) with
    my dad, worked the timber, if one of us kids (muffled work) work, why, we went out with
    him and worked with him and we just got started
    on it and all of us is timber workers. There was six boys and three girls. – [Interviewer] You always work together? – Yeah. We’re pals and partners,
    man and wife and buddies. The same work we do together and the thing we like to do together,
    which is usually him spending his time right
    here and my time at home. I mean, it’s just the two of us, why not? I never was much of a house cat. (wood clatters) – Now boys, this is conserving energy. This is old posts that have rotted off and hauled in and made up
    into cook wood (chuckles). (water sizzles) – [Interviewer] Why do you
    still cook on a wood stove? – Well, I’m not very much
    of a hand for change. I don’t like to see things
    changed too much and I have 500 acres of timber here and a man’s a damn fool
    to pay for electricity when he can go out and cut his wood. It’s falling down rotting. – [Interviewer] When
    did you get that stove? – I got it somewhere between ’34 and ’40. I don’t now what year it was and it cost, as I recall, about $85 and I can remember the shipping weight on it is 485 pounds crated. I can remember that
    ’cause I had to carry it, about as far as to be at the creek after we got it home. When we bought it, we were poor. We didn’t have a lot of money, practically no money and I told my wife, I said, now, you go ahead and pick out the kind
    of cook stove you want because, I said, it might
    cost you 15 or $20 more to get the kind you want but I said, you likely to use it for 20 years. Well, we’ve used it for over 40 (laughs). I said, the extra cost
    won’t amount to anything and I still feel like it’s pretty good advice. (birds chirp) – You know, these people live
    down here all their lives and they know what they’re doing as far as how to do it and everything. Of course, we came down and you have to adapt to local ways to get anywhere. One thing we did, we came
    down and built the house and wired the whole thing and we were told on how we were going to put our electric in, so we bought it in the spring and we were gonna come down in the summer. We left a note and talked to him and said here’s where we want
    the pole and we figured, well, we’d come down
    and electric would be in and we’d build the house. – Daddy! – [Betty] Now come on around. – And it was over a year before the house, the electricity even came in. We wired the house, had an air conditioner sitting in there, all the plugs and stuff and for a year we had kerosene lamps, which we didn’t even
    know about Aladdin lamps. – We learned a lot of patience. We learned that things
    do not happen quickly. When you’re in the city, if you want your electricity hooked up, it
    gets hooked up quickly. We learned not to expect
    things to happen quickly. If you want something
    done, you ask whoever is capable of doing it to help
    you and then you expect to wait quite awhile ’cause
    people are not in a hurry and we’ve, ourselves, have
    slowed down accordingly. (metal clangs) – [Narrator] The making of a fishing gig is a good symbol of the
    best of the old ways, slow, careful craftsmanship, resulting in something useful and beautiful as well. (metal clangs) (fire roars) (crickets chirp) In the fall and winter, the river belongs to those who live here. It’s a place of solitude. But in the summer. – Hey, Ed, let them take the van on down there under
    the bridge and park it, that way it’ll lighten the traffic here. We’re gonna get jammed
    up here in a little bit. He’s ready to go there in the van whenever you all are. Now then, I’ve got two more
    groups in here on the list. – [Woman] See, Keith had them right there. – I heard all about those. – You heard all about those? – Stapleton gets cushions. – [Blond Woman] Half and half. – [Man] Half and half. – [Blonde Woman] Half and half,
    five cushion, five jackets. – When you all get to Two Rivers, there’s a log cabin concession stand on the bank to the right, there’s a pay phone, you go up there, take a dime and dial our number first and let us answer and
    then put your dime in. These phones are backwards to the city, you lose your dime if you don’t. – Hey, Angel, you don’t need the paddles. You don’t need your paddles. – That’s one of our major tourist things is the canoe rental business. It brings, oh, I don’t
    know how many people but there’s about 2500 canoes around here that goes in the water
    on a Saturday morning and I think the town of Eminence is going along better with it. Now, at first, they didn’t, they rejected the flood of
    tourists that come in here. (uplifting bluegrass music) (uplifting bluegrass music) (water splashes) – I’d say probably tourism is one of our big businesses now in the area. It brings a lot of money in, makes a lot of business. – It’s bringing a lot of money but actually, if it had been up to everybody, it’s not doing it right now. – [Interviewer] Would you like
    to see something come in here to keep the kids around? – I would, actually,
    that’s something we need. I don’t know what it would take. – Our factories kept a
    few of the girls home, don’t you think? – [Interviewer] You think
    things are gonna change much in Shannon County in the future? – If the mining opens up, I think it will. – Yeah, I’d say it’d have to be mining to bring a lot of money
    in order to change, it would develop us a lot more activity, year round activity. (truck hums) – [Narrator] Just outside Shannon County are nine great lead mines. – Well, 85% of all lead
    produced in the United States is produced here in Missouri. This country, while we
    produce a lot of lead, we don’t produce all we need. We have to import some lead and this is why that
    there are now 15 major mining companies down in Shannon County searching for additional minerals. (machinery rumbles) Right now there is a
    worldwide shortage of lead and this is brought on a
    great deal by the fact that some of the underdeveloped
    countries in the world are now getting automobiles. Russia is buying a lot of
    lead on the world market, which they have not done in the past. (alarm buzzes and siren wails) And if our civilization
    is to continue to advance, as it is in our standard of living, as it is in some of the
    underdeveloped countries, there’s going to be increasing
    needs for more minerals because this is how civilization advances. (door rumbles) – [Freeman] Come Pate. – [Boy] Get up here, Pate, get up here. – I’m gettin’ the mule for you. – No, don’t get that mule. When you get your cane gold, you strip all the leaves off of it, cut it and top it and bring it to the mill and then you feed it through this mill and your juice runs out into this barrel and into your pan and you got three cookings of it before it goes into molasses. See right here, this
    is molasses right here and it’s coming out in this bucket, right here where this boy is rakin’. See, right there’s your
    finished product, right there. – [Interviewer] What was
    it like in the old days, did everybody do this? – Yes, sir. Everybody done it. Everybody has a sorghum
    patch and made sorghum, anywhere from 50 to 100 gallon and that’s what we lived on, cornbread and sorghum molasses and butter, wasn’t it? – Yeah. – And they’d have what I
    call ’em, taffy puliin’, cooked that down, made
    sorghum molasses candy and the boys would go to see the girls and they’d have a pocketful of that and they’d eat that there sorghum, wasn’t it? – [Woman] Yep, that’s right. – Yeah. And we’re telling you’uns the truth. – [Woman] That was back
    in the good ole days. – Yeah. – [Interviewer] How come
    you don’t make it anymore? It used to be so much
    fun and a social event? – Oh, they just quit. People now don’t work like they used to. They just, there’s lots and lots of work involved in this fire pit. – [Interviewer] You make this every year? – No, sir. And I doubt if I’ll ever do it again. – [Interviewer] How come? – Huh? – [Interviewer] How come? – I just don’t want to is the best answer I can tell you. – [Narrator] Brown’s Cafe
    is a nighttime hangout for some of the county’s teenagers. – [Interviewer] Why do
    you like Shannon County? – Not too many people, I just don’t like to be
    around a bunch of people. They’s fishin’ and huntin’ around here and they ain’t out in big cites. – [Interviewer] What do
    you think of it here? – I like it. – [Interviewer] You gonna live here when you’re out of school? – Probably not. – [Interviewer] How come? – Wanna get a good job. – [Interviewer] Are you
    gonna stick around here? – Yeah. – [Interviewer] What are you gonna do? – Carpenter, try it. – [Interviewer] How come you
    think you can make a living as a carpenter around here? Seems like everyone we talked
    to was a carpenter sometime. – Yeah, that’s what my
    dad’s done all his life and I figured if he can
    make a living, I can too. – [Interviewer] Do many
    kids still get out of school and work in the timber? – No. (machines whir) – [Narrator] There are three small factories in Shannon County and nearly all of the employees are women. (machines whir) So the girls find it
    easier to get a job here than the boys. – [Woman] Yeah, hallelujah,

It’s something that, Pentecostal women, when they go into church, they believe that their children should be brought up in church, taught to believe the way they believe and it’s went back generation after generation,
    back in my family, I know, that they were all
    Pentecostal and even the ones that don’t go to church or
    even go to other churches, still deep down inside them, they believe this way but maybe they’re not around here where they can go to a church like this. You get in the cities,
    there’s not, you know, not the country church anymore. – [Interviewer] Has either one of you ever thought of leaving the area? – Yeah, I thought of it. – Yeah, me too. Around here, most girls, they grow up and they get married, they don’t go on and have
    any education because they have to leave here
    and most of ’em don’t like to do that, they like to stay around here. About the only jobs around here for women is the factories, like
    in Eminence and Winona. You can work in cafes but
    they don’t pay enough, you know, without, for like a young girl, a summer job or something
    would be fine but somebody that’s trying to make a living, it’s just not enough. (people chatter) ♪ Never a man spake like this man ♪ ♪ Glorious King of kings ♪ ♪ He’s spoke to my troubled soul ♪ ♪ And now my heart sings ♪ ♪ He has promised in

(dogs bark) (crickets chirp) (frogs croak) – [Interviewer] How long have people been gigging around here? – Well, as far as time has been, I guess. I mean, I’m 47 years old and they was giggin’ when
    I was a little bitty boy and I heard my father and
    grandfather talk about giggin’. This is an Ellerman pitch gig that has been used in this country for years and years and still in use, of the few that is left, ’cause he’s not made ’em for
    the past five or six years and you’re very lucky
    to have one of ’em left. So that’s why I don’t use this one anymore than I do, I just
    want to keep it for keepsake. – [Interviewer] Is there
    a lot of craftsmanship going into those things? – Yeah, there’s a lot of craftsmanship and it takes lots of time to make a gig. (dogs bark) (metal clangs) – [Narrator] Only Ray Hicks still makes gigs in Shannon County
    in the traditional way. The master gig maker,
    Erb Ellerman, is dead and his son, Bill, left for the city. (metal clangs) – I helped Dad blacksmith
    for years and years and he was telling, said, well, if he stays down here and helps me, why, says I believe he’ll make a good one but said if he does like
    most these young bucks and takes off for St. Louis, says I don’t think he’ll
    ever amount to anything. That’s what I did. I went up there and went to work. Of course, once you get up there, then it’s kind of hard to come back. – [Interviewer] Do you miss it down here? – Yes, I miss it, I
    really like to come down and like this huntin’, if
    I don’t kill something, I really like just to get out in the woods where it’s quiet and set awhile, I really like it and
    I’d just love to go back to the old places where
    I was born and raised and see how much it changed
    in the last 30 years. We was by some of them yesterday and why they’s trees now that is about eight or 10 inches through where the houses used to set. I mean, it gives me a strange feeling to go back to them places now. I’d like to live down here but I kind of like it up there too because of the job and everything, so I guess I’ll just have to stay up there until I retire, anyway (chuckles). – [Interviewer] You’ve
    been on the school board and Shannon Superintendent of Schools, what do kids do here when
    they get out of high school? – Go to St.Louis, go to work,
    Springfield, leave here. – Most of them leave, unless- – It’s the only thing they can do. – If you’ll take a job
    in the timber or mills, not too much farming, some businesses. So as they go up, they leave, make a home somewhere. That’s like by the city, you can get them started
    in business and stay here. – [Interviewer] What do you
    boys plan to do when you get out of high school? – [Boy] Go to college. – [Interviewer] Will many
    in your class go to school? – I’d say about 1/4 or
    1/2 of them will go. – [Interviewer] What will the others do? – No tellin’. – Go to work for the park service. – [Interviewer] Would y’all
    like to be able to stay here, come back here? – Yeah but there’s not too big of a demand for civil engineers down here. (boys laugh) – There not too big a demand
    for anything here of any kind, you know, specialties. – There you go. I believe that one’s done. – Nice squirrel. – [Man] God, that looks good. – Who wants it? – [Man] I’ll pass. (gun blasts) (gentle guitar music) (guns blast) (people chatter) – [Boy] See, you killed it. – [Man] You killed about
    two or three there. (gentle guitar music) – Dollar and a half
    (muffled speech), hang ’em. – Pat, you got two shotgun rounds
    and turkey shootin’ to go. (people chatter) (gentle guitar music) (gun blasts) – [Man] I think I got
    one (muffled speech). – [Man] Okay. – [Man] There’s one. (people laugh) – Robert, don’t give ’em
    another turkey over there. – [Man] Where you live at? – Eminence, Missouri,
    hello, sir, how you doing? I’m Danny Staples, your
    state representative. – Hello. You’re late, I just voted for you. – Well, good. – You on the democrat ticket? – Yes, sir, I am. – I’m a republican, but I voted democrat. – Well, good, I’m glad to hear that. – [Narrator] Although running unopposed, Danny Staples still
    greets his constituents on Election Day. – The only way you can
    campaign in a county like Shannon County is to greet the people and knock on the doors and this is the way that most the candidates down here work. I like to do it. I think people expect to
    see you on Election Day. This is the reason I do it. When you go in there, put that
    x for Danny Staples, will ya, right here. – Oh, mercy, that’s great, Danny. – If you decide to burn
    something up, use these. I even got my picture on there. – Oh, boy. – [Danny] Well, that’s me, If I can help you anyway, give me a call. – I know. I know your number. – When I graduated from
    high school in 1952, there wasn’t anything here to
    keep the young people here, so most of my classmates, they migrated into the cities to find employment. Hello, sir, how are you? – Hi. – I’m Danny Staples. This used to be one of my girlfriends, long time ago. – (laughs) Oh, I thought Danny Staples was the cutest little thing
    that ever lived (laughs). – [Woman] I’ll have him
    tell me about it someday. – [Danny] Hello, Sheriff. – [Sheriff] Danny, how are you? – [Danny] Fine, how are you? – [Man] Oh, Danny, oh,
    Danny, he don’t even know whether he’s runnin’
    against anybody or not, he still campaigns. – He campaigns 24 days. – As the old boys in Eminence used to say, you gotta keep your name
    as common as cokie cola. (everyone laughs) – [Man] Cokie cola. – [Interviewer] What do you
    think the big economic changes will be for Shannon County in the future? – I think that’ll be,
    the lead industry will be one of the biggest
    things that could happen to Shannon County in the next few years. I think within three
    to five years from now we’ll see a lead mine
    somewhere in Shannon County, probably in the vicinity of Winona. I didn’t get to shake hands when you were in there votin’ for me. – Tom Wise. – Good to see you, and? – [Mrs. Wise] Mrs. Wise. – Good to see you. – We’re ex-Coloradans,
    we came down here about five or six– – [Mrs. Wise] And Kansas
    and Nebraska (laughs). – Well, I tell you
    what, we’re glad to have people from all over the country here and hope you like our area. – [Interviewer] Do you think
    there’ll be a great influx of people in the future? – Well, there’s gonna
    be an influx of people into Shannon County, with or without a lead mine. I think Shannon County is just beginning to start drawing. I think you’re gonna see a tremendous increase in population in all rural areas of Missouri within the
    next 10 or 15 years. (gentle bluegrass music) – [Narrator] Just as the
    teens hang out at Brown’s, Danny Staples, Windy Smith
    and other village elders, hang out at Bob’s Cafe. – I went up there to have
    dinner with them one day and they had a ‘coon
    and a hunk of bear meat and a deer ham laying on some coals and son, it’s black as the ground. (men laugh) You need coffee money? – No (muffled speech). – Let’s drank some coffee,
    then I gotta go look for some hounds. (men murmur) – [Narrator] Today, Paul Faulkenberry, the mayor of Eminence, has the floor. – I can see some problems. I see ’em everyday. First thing we got to do is and we are gonna have to convince and educate our younger people that we can’t have the same kind of lines that we had when we were small, because those days are gone. We’re living in a different day, things have changed. We’re in a tourist town here
    whether we like it or not, because we had a million
    and a half people already come through this country
    this last year, ’78, according to National
    Park Service figures, a million and a half people, that was just getting started. So, from what I can see, the future is going to be tourism. People are gonna have to
    become accustom to it, whether they like it or not, it’s here, it’s gonna stay, it’s not gonna leave. The National Park’s gonna be here, it’s not gonna leave, so
    we’re gonna have to learn not to fight this thing. We’re gonna have to join the people and see what we can come up with because that is the way it is. There’s no other way. (upbeat bluegrass music) – [Narrator] The Branson Strip, a narrow ridge 150 miles
    west of Shannon County. For millions of Americans, this is the Ozarks. (upbeat bluegrass music) (audience applauds) (upbeat bluegrass music) (audience applauds) (audience applauds) – Thank you, thank you so very much, ladies and gentlemen. My name’s Darrell Plummer and I’d like to welcome you to the Plummer
    Family Country Music Show, here on a Tuesday night in
    good ole Branson, Missouri. – Hey, don’t let all them
    fancy duds fool you now, folks, I mean, he’s still a hillbilly at heart. Yeah, he dresses up a lot but I bet he’s get on the raggediest underwear
    in this place tonight. – No! You’d probably know. – Yeah. (cows moo) – Ho, now, ho! Ho! Ho! Ho, now, ho! Ho, ho, ho! (cows moo) Get up there. Yeah, he’s not cooked yet. – Yeah, he is. (metal clangs) Oh, boy! (cows moo) (cow grunts) – [Freeman] There we go. – [Man] Just don’t get in
    my way if he comes loose. (cow moos) – Turn him the other way, bud. (cow moos) (cow moos) Don’t you wish you’d had
    that done a long time ago? – [Narrator] Charlie Cooper is a newcomer. He sold a valuable Iowa
    farm and came to the Ozarks. (birds chirp) His new home, a 5,000 acre ranch, is just outside Shannon County. – We lived up to Northwest Iowa and it just gets colder than the devil in the wintertime and I just started lookin’ for something else and we found this area down here and we just fell in love with the area. So we bought a place at Pomona, 210 acres and I give $27,500 for
    it, which the local people thought I give a
    tremendous price for it but at the same time, had
    a cousin at home that bought a new corn combine for more money than I paid for that 210 acres and I got to thinkin’ about that
    and I thought anytime a person could buy 200
    acres for less money than it cost to buy one combine, it had to be a pretty good deal. But I don’t think a lot of people here really realized the
    potential of this ground. Of course, I realize
    it’s got some rocks in it and so forth and it’s
    not flat and all that but I just wake up every
    morning excited about things that can be done because I know that even though I’m getting
    a lot of production out of this ground and so forth, there’s a lot of things we haven’t even scratched the surface on. – [Narrator] Charlie Cooper
    is at the leading edge of cattle breeding, taking embryos from prime stock, he places them in common
    cows for gestation and birth. This way, he increases his yield of quality calves dramatically. This procedure is called
    embryo implantation and it’s expensive. For each calf born, he must pay $500. There were 13 calves
    born out of the implants done this day and he will repeat this procedure as many as six times a year. – Woo! Come on! Come on, suet, suet, suet, suet, woo. (cows moo) Woo! (Freeman murmurs) – [Narrator] What Charlie Cooper is doing requires the sort of
    capital that Freeman Hughes could never have raised. (cows moo) – Woo! – [Charlie] I’d like to
    place a credit card call, the credit card number is 275279– I get a lot of friends that come from different parts of the country and they see what we’re trying to do here with the land and that and they can see the opportunity just like that. So, I think the people that come from the outside and take a look at this and see the opportunities,
    than there the ones that’s gonna be putting up the money to bring whatever type of industry here, agriculture or whatever. (birds chirp) (jet hums) – [Narrator] Claude
    Treeman is one outsider who saw the opportunities, that’s why he brought his factory here. – Charlie Cooper’s house is right over the top of this one over there. It’s to the east of that lake. You want to swing over and get closed in on that factory? – [Narrator] Treeman hired Rick Moger, a Shannon County boy, to manage it. – One interview and the
    first time I met Claude, within 30 minutes he’d hired me. Of course, I haven’t
    had time to regret it. It was super. – I move pretty fast, probably scare the heck
    out of a lot of people. Yeah, go ahead. We’re really not moving on
    anything that we do in the city. – Two nights ago he called from Denver. It was 1:30 here and he was coming back and he wanted me to make sure the hangar door was up and his rig was out so he wouldn’t have to stop
    and get out of the jet. – Okay, Dick, we’re getting
    ready to go into a landing. We don’t really have a tower here but we always kid about having to call into the Mountain View
    International Airport. (jet hums) And wouldn’t this be a James Bond movie? (speaks foreign language) – [Narrator] Claude Treeman’s factory is one mile west of the
    Shannon County line. It makes coin change mechanisms that are shipped all over the world. (machines whir) – [Interviewer] What made you bring one of your factories down here? – Well, I think that’s part of falling in love with the town, just giving them some work. The town needs an infusion
    of money and industry and a few other things. – [Interviewer] What does this place have to offer to industry? – Well, I think the biggest
    thing it has to offer is a good labor market and a very serene and nice climate, industrial
    climate, for working. (machine clangs) – This is one of the particular different varieties of what we make. Here at Mountain View we
    do all the metal work, all the plastic will be
    done still in St. Louis and Puerto Rico, it’s simply a coin acceptor that will accept a
    quarter, dime and a nickel, reject a penny, particular
    ones would go in a telephone or whatever. (coin clinks) We hope it never fails. When Claude first come to the area, he was, the acceptance
    is not what it is today and still today there’s
    a lot of people acting like they’re afraid of Claude. I don’t know whether
    they’re afraid of Claude or what he represents. It’s changed a lot now
    that they can visually see what he’s going to do ’cause so many people in this area said, I’m going to do this or that and that’s as far as they got,
    just in the talking stages and he’s actually, what
    he said he’s gonna do, he’s done that and more. (tractor rumbles) – [Narrator] Claude Treeman
    continues to do more. He is already doubling the
    size of his facilities here. – With this plant that
    we’re going to build, we’re have electronic development, electronic assembly, electronic repair, electronic design. I suppose when we’re through with it, we’ll have 150, 200 jobs. – The aspect with humans are everyday, great things about living in the Ozarks, the face to face contact
    and knowing people by name rather than by number or
    just another employee. This part of the country is what’s so great about it. Yet we could have that and have a thriving industry which ships parts to who knows where all over the world and some people think maybe
    you can’t have this along with the old adage
    of just country living, yet I see no reason we can’t have it and I think the blend is great. (machines whir) – [Narrator] And that’s the big question, can you have it both ways? Can you have factories
    in the quiet wilderness, corporate employment and individualism, innovation and tradition, so many new people and
    the old sense of solitude? (log thuds) (bird caws) – [Interviewer] You must like it. – Huh? – [Interviewer] I say, you must like it. – Oh, yeah, yeah, I do, because I’m my own boss. If I wanna set down right this minute I ain’t hurtin’ nobody but myself, see? – You just think you’re your own boss. – And if I’m workin’ for the other man, you think, there’s nothing
    because you’re hurtin’ him. Of course, most usually all of ’em will give you a bite (muffled speech) but workin’ out here,
    you can work just however you wanna work. (truck hums) – [Narrator] The Rectors
    and their view of work may not return again. – 50 years ago, 25 years ago, this area was one of the
    poorer parts of an old country and I think that within 15 to 20 years, it’s gonna be the richest
    part of the state of Missouri, due to the fact that we’ll have, maybe we’ll have a land mine and maybe we’ll have, I know we’ll have tourism and I think this area of the state is gonna be full of Cadillac’s and I hope I’m fortunate
    enough to have one. – We’ve dreamed about
    it for a long time but not until six years ago that we really made any money. Like, say, we’d get a few
    bucks now and then but like I said before, we
    just always dreamed of it but we couldn’t afford it. We couldn’t afford to play music because at that time, times were
    really rough for us and we’d go out and maybe once or twice a lady would give you something for playing but most of the time it was just, you had to pay to play. Back around Knob Lick, we had an old school there where we had the pie suppers and box suppers and it took gas money to
    get there and get back. Most of time you got nothing out of it, you’re just happy to go play. We loved to play it so much. – 8:30 showtime. – [Customer] Okay, thank you. – The doors open at 7:30 if you’d like to come early. – Some people complain about the traffic, it takes them 30 minutes to get downtown or something like that
    but we never complain. If it wasn’t for that traffic, we wouldn’t be here. Hey, we’re gonna have a
    little bluegrass music. This is one of the old time ones, Melody and Larry’s gonna
    do the pickin’ on it, “She’ll Be Comin’ Around the
    Mountain When She Comes”. (lively bluegrass music) (audience applauds) (lively bluegrass music) – [Interviewer] Do you know
    a lot of people in this area that were wanting to do what you did? – Hundreds.
    – Yes. – [Darrell] We sure do. – [Darrell’s Wife] Some family
    or some group wanted to– – [Darrell] Some of them
    are much better than we are. We know that, that’s why we support them. (lively bluegrass music) (audience applauds) ♪ Some bright morning

(cows moo) – [Narrator] The ways of the
    past cannot remain unchanged. – There was a time, you know, a man come out here and get hold of enough money to buy him a team,
    a wagon and a saddle, harness and a breaking
    plow and a double shovel and clear him up a little
    piece of land and go farming. You don’t do that anymore. (cows moo) It takes a hundred to $200,000 of money to start in on the thing now, anything you gonna do to farm. (cows moo) – [Interviewer] What’s gonna happen to this land when you’re gone? – Well, it’ll go to the boy. (cows moo) And when it’s gone, it’ll go to his boy. – [Interviewer] You hope
    they’ll keep farming it? – Huh? – [Interviewer] You hope
    they’ll keep farming it? – I hope they will. I know this one will. (cows moo) – [Interviewer] Can you
    make a living off of it? – Well, I did and paid for it. (gentle guitar music) – [Narrator] What price progress, what price the preservation of the past and a price must be paid, if not by us than by our children. (gentle guitar music) – [Interviewer] What do
    the young people want? – [Man] I’m not sure
    that I can answer that, based on the son, I would say, a home, family, about what
    the old people wanted. – [Interviewer] Do they want to stay here? – [Man] Most of the young
    people would rather stay here if there was any opportunity,
    if there’s any employment. The young have read a book, so to speak, and they are trying to find an easier way to make a living than the pioneers did. (gentle guitar music) (fire hisses) (metal clanks) (gentle guitar music) – I don’t see nothing
    wrong with that, do you? – [Interviewer] Looks great to me. – I ain’t pretty or nothing, Gayle. (lively bluegrass music)
