"Here is Oklahoma, from the tumultuous Land Rush of 1889 down to modern times. Here is the hard, dangerous, and defiant struggle of the pioneers against heat, dust, thirst, Indians, and the wilderness; the first oil gushing from the parched ground, the incredible fortunes made overnight, the Osage multi-millionaires who startled the world, the amazing, mushroom growth of a skyscraper city in the middle of the prairie. ... The might novel of the opening of the West by one of America's most powerful writers." -- prefatory and back-cover text
