Original Summary:
"There are many facets that reveal the history of any given area; this film chooses to highlight Missouri history through its architecture, its artists, music and literature. Numerous examples of architecture, in St. Louis and Kansas City are shown with special emphasis upon the influence of the French who settled at Ste. Genevieve. The "greats" in Missouri music included Scott Joplin and W.C. Handy; Kansas City jazz became famous because of Bennie Moten, Count Basie and Charlie Parker. The uniqueness of the Ozark area has remained relatively untouched; its folk art, the writing of Harold Bell Wright and its gospel music convey the particular charm of the hill country."--WorldCat.
