David Baird and Danney Goble, both authorities on the 46th state, explore Oklahoma historys intricate tapestry of themes, stories, and perspectives, including those of the states diverse population of American Indians. Offering fresh insights on widely recognized history makers, such as Sequoyah, and well-known milestones like the 1889 Land Run and the Glenn Pool oil strike, the authors also reveal lesser-known but equally important Oklahoma people, places, and events. The result is a rousing, often surprising, and ever-fascinating story.
