|The Wider Wilcox came to Arkansas with her family in the last part of the 1800’s. Everything the family needed to start a new homestead was packed on a wooden wagon that was drawn by two gray donkeys.
Using the trees and plants found on Rattlesnake Ridge together with the seed that they had packed, she and her family built a life. Using hand tools and the common knowledge of the time, they built a log cabin, grew crops of sorghum and tobacco, made remedies with mullein, horehound and numb tongue and dug sassafras, sang and yellowroot.
The humor and drama in the story captures the imagination and informs folks about the history of the beneficial plants of the Ozark Mountains.
