The Ozark Trail Guidebook

Margo was born and raised in the St. Louis, Missouri area.  She has spent much of her life on a bicycle, racing, and exploring on long distance rides.  Those experiences led her to write her first book, Cycling St. Louis. She hopes that through her books others will enjoy the wonders of the outdoors.  Margo is a lifetime member of the Ozark Trail Association, and has worked for the Missouri Conservation Department on the Gypsy moth program.  Her interests include photography, kayaking, hiking, and bike riding.  She loves growing native plants, along with organic vegetables and flowers, with dreams to someday have a little farm and roadside stand.
