Today’s book, The Goat Woman of Smackover, by Ramona Smith, is an Arkansas original. The author’s wonderful and quirky illustrations tell the story of Salome Millar Myers, an ex-Barnum and Bailey circus performer who made her home in Smackover where she lived with her husband in a circus carriage and raised goats. Her eccentric ways charmed both children and adults alike.
