"Little Piney River has its source in the southern part of Phelps County, Missouri. Its general direction is north until its junction with Beaver Creek. Then it flows nearly due west and empties into the Gasconade River near Arlington, Mo. It drains an area of approximately two hundred square miles. The slopes of its drainage area being very steep, it is subject to large and sudden rises. As it is largely a spring fed stream its minimum flow is not far below its normal stage. The stream abounds in rapids with from a few inches to a foot or more drop in each one. For many years this stream has been used to furnish power for grist mills and the like, the method in such cases being to erect a small dam at such a point as was convenient and carrying the water down-stream to some point where the drop was sufficient for the purpose"--page 1.
