About the Book

As Northwest Arkansas entered the 21st Century, it found itself facing the same spiritual and political struggles that many other American cities faced. Here are the stories of people who were determined to make their communities better than they were. It is a book that tells the story of great triumphs, and bravery in the face of overwhelming odds. Even in defeat, the men and women in these pages found spiritual solidarity. Ozark Mosaic is the perfect antidote for those who feel that people no longer are the masters of their own destinies.

About the Author

Once described by the Northwest Arkansas Times as ?Fayetteville?s Renaissance Man,? Richard S. Drake has been active in alternative print and television journalism during some of the most politically exciting periods of recent Northwest Arkansas history. With the insight drawn from employment with such important journals as the Grapevine and the Ozark Gazette, he has interviewed those on the front lines of the past decade?s major political and social struggles. Married to choreographer Tracy Cutaia, he is also the author of the novel, Freedom Run.
