Pub. Date:
Prairie City is the social history of a representative midwestern town -- a composite of several Oklahoma small towns. Beginning with the "one flashing moment" of the 1889 land run, which opened the "Oklahoma Lands" for white settlement, Angie Debo depicts the struggles of the settlers on the vast prairie to build a community despite seasons of drought, prairie fire, and destitution. Solidly based on historical research, Prairie City chronicles the arrival of the railroad, the growth of political parties and educational institutions, KKK uprisings, the oil boom, the Depression and the New Deal, and the effects of two world wars on small-town America. Rennard Strickland provides an introduction on the importance of Debo's "microcosm of America". Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
