The tales take place in a semi-autonomous region located on either side of a dogleg of the Ozark Mountains. The natives of the region descend Tennessee and Kentucky pioneering men who were shorn of birthright and therefore forced to move westward in search of wild game and security. Some arrived in the wild upper reaches of the Ozarks just ahead of U.S. Marshals. These hillbillies are about as friendly a bunch of citizens that can be found any place. They may not pay taxes, or believe in gainful employment, but then they don't expect handouts from anybody either, especially the Government.
