“The difference between John Dwyer and other historical authors is that he doesn’t just tell you what happened, he shows why people did what they did.” – Dr. Bob Blackburn, Executive Director, Oklahoma Historical Society.

 

As war clouds gather across the seas, Lance (Roark) finds romance first with teenaged Chickasaw cowgirl and stunt flying sensation Sadie Stanton, then with beautiful oil heiress Mary Katherine Murchison, whose mesmerizing voice carries her to the heights of Big Band Era stardom – from the book Shortgrass.

 

This is the story about Mennonite farm boy, Lance Roark – whose faith is as big as the challenges he faces on his family’s drought-ravaged Dust Bowl spread on the old Chisholm Trail. Lance is also a star on the football field and a natural-born aviator. These abilities lead him to college gridiron glory and bring him into contact with famed aviators Charles Lindbergh and Wiley Post, entertainment icons Will Rogers and Bing Crosby, best-selling young author, John F. Kennedy and President Franklin Roosevelt.

 

This book opens on Thanksgiving Day 1934 in Marlow, Oklahoma.

Autographed by the author, a member of the Duncan High School Class of 1974.
