Quote of the Day

"I seriously doubt I would have written one novel about Arkansas, let alone 14 of them, if I had not many years ago read John Gould Fletcher’s Arkansas, a magnificent history of the state which remains a highly readable and exciting book. I can remember as if it were yesterday the thrill of finding out so many interesting things about the people who have made Arkansas unique. Not to require Arkansas history in the schools is a tragedy."

--Donald Harington, "Lost History a Tragedy," Letter to the Editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
