Overview

From One of America's Best-Loved Writers of the Early Twentieth Century …

Harold Bell Wright was truly one of America's master writers of the early twentieth century. His books have sold millions of copies. He possessed an amazing ability to capture a slice of memorable history, to introduce unforgettable characters, and through it all to weave meaningful truth and spiritual significance.

The Shepherd of the Hills is the classic story of the stranger who takes the Old Trail deep into the Ozark mountains, many miles from civilization. His appearance signals intellect and culture, yet his countenance is marked by grief and disappointment. He is a man with a mission, yet one which no one understands. What is his purpose in taking on the lowly work of tending local sheep? And how is it that he befriends these simple hill folk, despite his coming from the world beyond the ridges?

Mystery and romance envelop this gentle yet compelling story as the identity and purpose of the strange-turned-shepherd is gradually unveiled.

The ARose Books publication of this story has been carefully edited producing a beautiful book. The Nook version was created from the published book, which was NOT a scanned copy.

I read this book many years ago and have since re-read it. It's just timeless and classic. Don't let this slip by you. It's an incredible, tender story of suspense and human relationships. I am a native of this beautiful Ozark Country. The story hit it right on.

A perfect mixer for all aspects of a book. It brings life, romance and the true meaning of faithful all together in a very inspiring way. I am from the Ozarks and Bell's description is perfect in describing the sheer beauty. The story gradually carries you through the rough terrain of the mountains and into a world of average everyday people who are very loyal and accepting of an elderly man who is searching for something he has lost. The ending is far from what you would expect but very fitting to the story. Happy reading.

Be careful of which copy you get if you wish to read this classic. This edition is a good copy and wasn't scanned. Most of the free copies are virtually unreadable on the nook. As for the book itself. A wonderful classic. I give it 3 stars (stingy with stars) and recommend it.

This was a great book with each chapter heading urging you to continue to read on. It never became boring with the events following in order to the final page. THe book has mystery drama and romance painted in the beauty of the Ozark Mountains.

Travel the back hills of long ago along a path that no one knows is how old. This warm human interest story begins with a lonely old man traveling in search of something that he does not know. He finds rest and comfort in the quiet life among friends who do not know the deep dark secret he possesses. 'Dad' as he is come to be known by the simple backwood folk of the Ozarks, soon builds a lasting friendship. A climatic end finally brings to light the dark secret and joins the two families together.
