Hardback, 240 pages, 7"x10"

From The Publisher
This is the documented story told in words and rare pictures, of the speculators who brought about the oil field, the men and women who built the town, and some important episodes in Drumright's hectic years from 1912 to 1941. Stillwater author Dr. Earl Newsom has researched and compiled the history of one of the world's most spectacular oil discoveries and the town, Drumright, that resulted. It tells of a life with tents as homes, the struggle of the law and the lawless, the history of schools and churches, the era of the Klu Klux Klan, and many special memories. It is a story and a lasting reference for anyone who cares about Oklahoma oil history or who ever lived in the exciting, happy–go–lucky town.
