The Ravine and Crooked Creek

Author Bio

Nita Gould is Ella Barham's cousin and a direct descendant of the Barhams of Boone County, Arkansas. Her tenacious pursuit to create an authoritative account of the community, the crime, and the subsequent legal battle spanned nearly fifteen years.

An avid student of Ozarks history and a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Gould is a preservation enthusiast who successfully nominated several Boone County, Arkansas properties to the National Register of Historic Places, including her own Barham ancestral home.

Gould works in the field of information technology in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she lives with her husband and two cats, but her passion is frolicking in the hills of the Arkansas Ozarks.
