The brief epilogue, which is meant to serve as a sort of interpretive bridge to volume 3, recounts the story of the Christian County, Missouri, Bald Knobbers and the national press that these vigilantes received in the late 1880s, culminating in a triple hanging in 1889. This last segment of the Bald Knobber saga marks a watershed in the history of the region as the point at which the “cultural Ozarks” starts to emerge in the American consciousness--a point that is extended in the first chapter of volume 3.
