This colorful coffee-table book features current and historic photos in its 192 pages as well as original artwork by artist Bryan Haynes depicting events in Missouri River Country. Missouri River Country: 100 Miles of Stories and Scenery from Hermann to the Confluence features, in an unprecedented way, the places and stories that make up the fabric of life in the countryside west of St. Louis along the Missouri River. The book weaves that together with the conservation measures needed to preserve the landscape into a compelling and unique anthology.
For the outdoor enthusiast, Wine Country offers several outstanding County Parks, Klondike, Broemmelsiek, and Matson Hill each offer unique opportunities to explore the Missouri countryside. Natural and paved trails wind through tree-lined hillsides to give cyclists a challenging ride and hikers tremendous views of wildlife, native plants, and rolling countryside. In addition, a portion of the popular Katy Trail State Park, a 237-mile hiking and biking trail, runs along the region's southern edge.
Missouri has plenty of urban environments to explore, but the smaller towns are the best way to connect with the scenic grassy plains and Ozark forests of the Missouri countryside. Within the towns themselves, you'll find comforting small-town charm, excellent restaurants and shops, as well as plenty of things to do which the whole family can enjoy. 2b1af7f3a8
