5.0 out of 5 stars Papoose City is an interesting read., December 13, 2011
This review is from: Papoose City (Paperback)
Papoose City is a slice of American history during the oil boom days of the 1920s. Readers learn about life in a boom town through the personal narratives of Mattie Muirhead Dillman, Gertie Jones Reed, Billy Bob Richardson, P.J. Primm and others. They talk about daily life, meeting friends, falling in love, the ebb and flow of growth and the tough side of life among roughnecks. Historical photos, maps and other documents are included. Papoose City: The Life and Death of a 20th Century Oil Boomtown is unique due to the research involved. Author Judy Goodspeed conducted personal interviews of people who lived in Papoose City, Oklahoma. This book has been in the works for many years. Goodspeed lives in the area and her family's land was once part of Papoose City. Included in the tale, is the damage done to the area from pulling oil out of the ground and the forming of the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board (OERB) to restore the scarred land. Book includes index and bibliography. Papoose City is an interesting, well-written read.

Anything Oklahoma is of interest to me since I live here. And Oklahoma history is the best. With ancestors that lived it and most of my family in the oil business in one way or another, this is very interesting.
