Itcovers law enforcement, selling whiskey, Indians, love and family, circus tent preachers, medicine men and the oil companys takeover of much ofOklahomas natural assets. It is also about how society was reacting to the trials and problems of the common man.You will need to put yourself back int history and forget modern day events to enjoy reading this book. As you read you will soon find that you areidentifying the same kinds of events that happened then with similar events that happen everyday in our current world. It is a fact, history doesrepeat itself. The only differences are the people and the more modern way things are being done today.My first two books were centered on Texas. This one was just waiting inside my head to jump out. I wanted to tell a tale of the early days in thewonderful state of Oklahoma. The West as we refer to our country today, was based on several states and the extreems found in all of the areas. Ihope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
