Oklahoma, A History, covers the story of the Sooner State – from the tectonic formation of its varied landscape, to the recovery and renewal following the Oklahoma City bombing, to the threshold of its centennial.

W. David Baird and Danney Goble, authorities on the 46th state, explore its rich history – offering fresh insights on recognized history makers like Sequoyah and milestones such as the 1889 Land Run or Glenn Pool oil strike.

“Lively prose, vivid biographical vignettes, and artful synthesis make this book the best brief overview of Oklahoma ever written — a rich and insightful narrative.” – Chronicles of Oklahoma

*This book does mention The Chisholm Trail, but only briefly.
