About Lil Petes
In the early 1900s, a Christian minister wandered into the Ozark hills, looking for better health, and found a community that would change his future. Wright camped on the very homestead you can visit today and wrote The Shepherd of the Hills based on the people he grew to love, and set in the hills that soothed his soul with their fresh, natural beauty.
