Never Give Up: The Life of Pearl Carter Scott

Author: Paul F. Lambert

Hardback, 271 pages. 2007- The Chickasaw Press

“Pearl was truly a legend in the history of Oklahoma, the world of aviation and in the Chickasaw Nation. She made a lasting impact on everyone she met and her life story is sure to have a profoundly positive impact for many generations to come.” – Bill J. Anoatubby, Governor, Chickasaw Nation.


Pearl Scott was a pioneer in so many ways: aviation, tribal services, good citizenship and laughter among them. – Gary Childers, Special Assistant to the Governor, Chickasaw Nation


Pearl was honored by the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Nov. 11, 2002, thanks to State Rep. Ray McCarter, who also is from Marlow – where Pearl lived her life. She was bestowed many honors in her lifetime, including induction into the Chickasaw Nation Hall of Fame and the Oklahoma Aviation and Space Hall of Fame.


This book is filled with pieces of history.

Excerpt: On Saturday, Oct. 4 (2003) Pearl was thrilled to participate in the Chickasaw Nation Annual Meeting parade, riding with her friend Commander John Herrington. ….The symbolism of the first Chickasaw aviator and the first Chickasaw astronaut riding together was a powerful reminder of the advances in aviation technology that had been made in just over 70 years from Pearl’s Curtiss Robin to Herrington’s Space Shuttle Endeavour.”


On page 203 is a reference to the Chisholm Trail.


Written by Oklahoman, Paul F. Lambert, Ph.D. He has authored or co-authored more than a dozen books related to the history of Oklahoma and the petroleum industry.
