Item Details

The story of Tulsa’s transformation from anineteenth-century cow town into the “Oil Capital of the World” has been aboveground for years, but a great reservoir of Tulsey Town’s heritage has remainedbeneath the surface. These neglected tales include the dirigible flyover of1929, the Hominy Indians’ victory over the New York Giants and the legendaryfinal performance of Spade Cooley, convicted killer and the self-proclaimed“King of Western Swing.” From the horrors of the city’s early race riot and theproud legacy of Greenwood (aka Little Africa or Black Wall Street) to Tulsa’s iconic landmarks and unforgettablepersonalities, Steve Gerkin provides an evocative and enjoyable voyagethrough T-Town’s hidden history.
