The book evokes a place as much as a people. The book’s central question is what we owe our children and humanity writ large.

There is probably not an Oklahoman or a visitor to Oklahoma who hasn't wondered about the meaning or origin of the names of many of our cities and towns and other landmarks.

Blake Wade, Executive Director, Oklahoma Centennial Commission
