Annotation:Jacob and Noah Ingledew trudge 600 miles from their native Tennessee to found Stay More, a small town nestled in a narrow valley that winds among the Arkansas Ozarks and into the reader's imagination.

Nail Chism appears doomed to death-until his innocence is championed by the staff artist of the state's leading newspaper.

Annotation:In this Stay More novel, Harington tracks the gubernatorial campaign of Vernon Ingledew, whose atheism, lack of college education, relationship with his first cousin, and so forth have been uncovered by the opposition.
Annotation:What starts out as a suspenseful recounting of child abduction evolves into a story of Robin Kerr growing up in the wilds of the Ozarks, on a remote, inaccessible mountain-top, where she is kept company by numerous animal companions and the ghost of a young boy.
Annotation:Every time Hoppy enters a town in his truck, he is greated with delight and anticipation. It's not that Hoppy is so special; it's the pitcher shows that he brings with him, the shoot-'em-ups and giddyappers that all the Ozark folk adore that have them lining up to welcome him.
Annotation:A nameless curator of American antiquities, seeks refuge from a devastating divorce in the wilderness of the Ozark mountains where he installs himself in a cave with only a dog for company and a primitive spear to provide his supper.
Annotation:Continues the story of the little town of Stay More, and reveals for the first time the mysteries of Latha Bourne, who is set apart from her fellow Stay Morons by her beauty, wit, and intense, unfulfilled sexuality.
