This book is for those who didn't kw that grape vines in Missouri changed the wine industry in France, or that the worst earthquake in American history also occurred in the same state, or that more Civil War battles were fought on Missouri soil than any other border state. If you prefer two-lane blacktop and gravel roads over interstates, this is the book for you.
