"Acknowledgment": p. 403–405.

In 1936 the author, a Pulitzer prize winning poet, was commissioned by the leading newspaper of Little Rock to write The Epic of Arkansas in honor of the centenary of his native State. With a passionate interest in the cultural development of his people, he wrote this book about Arkansas ten years later. In it he combines an anecdotal history with a description of the two distinct types of population, one found in the Ozark Mountain region of the northwestern half of the State, and the other in the lowlands of the southeastern half. He describes the economic worlds of those types, mountaineers and sharecroppers, and analyzes the combination of Southern and frontier characteristics which has produced the "Arkansawyer." He looks askance at the development of industry in the State by outside interests, and at the influence of Northern attitudes on racial relationships, and insists that any human progress in Arkansas must come from within.
