By the time Spanish explorer Hernando de Sota arrived in Arkansas in 1541, the area was resplendent with the Native American culture of the Caddo, Osage, and Quapaw. The name "Arkansas" comes from a Quapaw word that means "south wind." This book serves as an entertaining visit to Arkansas—the Natural State. Students will gain a solid understanding of the state's government, economics, history, culture, and geography. Highlighted celebrated residents include Judge Isaac C. Parker, John Hanks Alexander, Daisy Gaston Bates, Sam Walton, Art Porter Senior, Johnny Cash, J. William Fulbright, William Jefferson Clinton, Mary Steenburgen, and Scottie Pippen.
