The drama, the excitement, and the achievement of the Oklahoma heritage are brought to young readers in this new history of the state by Arrell M. Gibson, eminent Oklahoma historian. The Oklahoma story begins with the first settlers entering this land over 15,000 years ago, living in caves and hunting the Columbian mammoth and other animals now extinct, and with Spaniards, Frenchmen, and Americans exploring this wilderness during the early historic perilous. The reader can sense the daring of swift-riding Kiowa and Comanche lancers charging into t heard of buffalo on the Oklahoma prairies, share the suffering of the Five Civilized Tribes on their "Trail of Tears" to Oklahoma: or perhaps feel the danger of scouting with Cherokee General Stand Watie's raiders during the Civil War, driving a herd of Texas longhorn cattle up the Chisholm Trail, or racing for a homestead in the Cherokee Outlet.
