If you haven't read the book "Shepherd of the Hills" by Harold Bell Wright, you might want to pick up a copy. It's a wonderful story for all ages. Published in 1907 and one of the most widely read books in history, this beautiful and moral story set in motion the tourism industry in the Ozarks. People came from all over to see the people and places mentioned in the book. The book has been translated into 7 languages and spurred 4 motion pictures, one featuring John Wayne. Today the book is brought to life at the Shepherds Homestead Theater.

There is more to the Shepherd of the Hills Homestead though and you could spend the whole day here. Shops, trail rides, homestead tours, the magnificent Inspiration Tower, the Ziprider running from the top of the tower down the mountainside. It’s a thrill you'll want to experience. At dusk before the Shepherd Theater show you can experience a old chuck wagon feast and relax to the great sounds of the famous Sons of the Pioneers. At Christmastime the mountain lights up for a 2 ½ mile trip through a Christmas wonderland. Find at more about this Ozarks tradition on our Shepherd of the Hills page.

Deeper into the hills past the Shepherd's Theater you'll find one of the most well known of the Branson attractions in that unique little city that has become a world-class, award winning amusement park. It is like no other and Grandma and Grandpa will like it just as much as the kids.
