In this segment of our series These Ozarks Hills, folk storyteller Marideth Sisco shares how a recent medical scare caused her to reflect on what's important to her—including the dreams she still has for her life. You can hear the audio essay by clicking the "Listen" button above.

Marideth is a Missouri storyteller, veteran journalist, teacher, author, musician and student of folklore focusing on stories relevant to Ozarks culture and history. Each month, she’s the voice behind "These Ozarks Hills.” Sisco spent 20 years as an investigative and environmental writer for the West Plains Quill and was well known for her gardening column, “Crosspatch,” on which her new book is based. Sisco was a music consultant and featured singer in the 2010 award-winning feature film “Winter's Bone.”
