Format: Hardcover
(I'm reviewing the 4th Edition Hardcover) This atlas maps and details an astonishing number of facts about Oklahoma. There's something for everyone: political (e.g. "Constitutional Convention Delegate Districts, 1906" , geologilcal ("Geologic Formations), biological ("Buffalo Country"), military ("Civil War Battlesites, 1861-1865"), and this sampling barely scratches the surface: my use of the word 'astonishing' wasn't mere hyperbole. Each subject has about a page's worth of explanatory text and maps of excellent quality. One of the strongest themes in the book involves the indian populations of the state: there are numerous pages, from "Early Arrivals, 40,000-12,000 BC"/"Early Big-Game Hunters, 12,000-8,000 BC" to the "Proposed State of Sequoyah, 1905", with meticulous maps of the various indian territories in-between, as they were created and modified over the years. This is a great book for any Oklahoman: The authors, and OU Press, have done a very fine job.

Historical Atlas of Oklahoma
A great improvement over its previous format, this 4th edition comes alive with new informative text, colorful maps and charts of every kind and numerous historical photographic images.. It focuses on every facet of Oklahoma history from a geo-historical point of view, i.e. what happened and where did it happen. For example there is a section on the forced removal of the Cherokees and other southeastern tribes into Oklahoma, showing their lands and routes to Oklahoma from their native ground. It covers the land runs on the various openings of Indian and unassigned lands, again with an eloquent map to picture it all for the reader. The book is in chronological order and touches on such issues as census data by area and minority population change, 1990-2000. For the family who wishes to use this as a vacation resource, there are maps to museums and historic sites, state parks and recreation areas. It closes with a panoply of noted Oklahomans. Obviously, the book works on many levels. It is also beautifully published (by O.U. Press) for its official centennial edition (2007). It makes a lovely coffee table book, that visitors will not be able to resist picking up and thumbing through.

Our family has a small cattle ranch in the sparsely populated Cimarron county ( No man's land) in Oklahoma. I wanted to get a good reference book on Oklahoma past and present. This 4th edition surpassed my expectations.

There are excellent pictures and illustrations. We see the climate, rainfall, geology,mineral deposits, oil and gas sites, description of birds, other animals of Oklahoma and various plants and crops as well as natural resources of the different regions and later counties. We see the Indian territory and Oklahoma territory. Also there is the small strip later called Cimarron, Texas and Beaver counties of Oklahoma. It was No Man's land neither a part of the Indian territory or Oklahoma territory. Texas registered as an ex " slave state" before statehood. Texas had to give the small northern strip of No Man's land to the US.

There is even a chapter describing dinosaur tracks and fossils found in the panhandle. Lists of old forts, recreational areas, lakes, rivers and more. Did you know Cimarron county has a Helium plant and that Oklahoma has the highest registered horse density in the US? Lots and lots of interesting tidbits.

The book has lots of chapters on the different Indian tribes and culture. We see the "Trail of Tears" and the many tribes dumped into the Indian territory. Also some of the black history in scattered parts of Oklahoma. There are lots of references to various sports legions that grew up in Oklahoma including my heroes Mickey Mantle and Johnnie Bench. Also lots of Hollywood actors and singers that grew up in Oklahoma.

This book has so much for all interests. Someone should find something that interests them. For me there was too much to take into one sitting.

After just moving to OK City, I ran across this book. This is a great book on the Native American tribe. How the the land was chosen and maped out for the different tribes. Hunting maps and agriculture in the beginning and now. Very interesting. A great get to "know your state" book.
