Ozark Baptizings, Hangings, and Other Diversions
Theatrical Folkways of Rural Missouri, 1885-1910Book - 1984
"Ozark Batpizings, Hangings, and Other Diversions is a significant work dealing with a little-studied aspect of Ozark and American folk tradition. As such it is of value to folklorists, social and cultural historians, and anthropologists, and will remain so for some time to come. It is well written, superbly researched....What Gilmore does is present the typical in such a way that it is fascinating and, in so doing, tells more about Ozark life than can be found in many far more pretentious volumes."- Journal of Southern History
