Overview

The drama and excitement of the Oklahoma story unfold in this comprehensive history covering prehistory, Spanish and French exploration, the removal of Indian tribes to what the federal government called Indian Territory, and the modern period of state politics and economic development. Gibson informs his readers with refreshing candor: betrayal of the Indians, racism, and political corruption are told in their entirety.

Later chapters tell of the vibrant modern period, when Oklahoma politics became more sophisticated, the state's economic base expanded as industry moved to the Sun Belt, and the humanities and the arts were advanced with increasing appreciation of the state's rich Indian heritage.

Enlivened by numerous illustrations and maps, this volume is a valuable resource for teachers, students, historians, and anyone who wants to know more about the Sooner State.
