The Ozarks belongs to a high altitude plateau in the central United States. The relative isolation of the region and unique conditions have contributed to the distinctive culture of the Ozark's inhabitants, mostly descendants of Scots-Irish and German settlers in the 19th century. Ozark culture typically reflects the self-sufficient lifestyle of settlers as well as their conservative and family-oriented sensibilities
