Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Proud to be an Okie is a fresh, well-researched, wonderfully insightful, and imaginative book. Throughout, La Chapelle's keen attention to shifting geographies and urban and suburban spaces is one of the work's real strengths. Another strength is the book's focus on dress, ethnicity, and the manufacturing of style. When all of these angles and insights are pulled together, La Chapelle delivers a fascinating rendering of Okie life and American culture."—Bryant Simon, author of Boardwalk of Dreams: Atlantic City and the Fate of Urban America

About the Author

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
La Chapelle has meticulously documented the country music of Southern Califofrnia. I grew up in this culture. My dad was a Dust Bowl Okie, and I grew up with Johnny Bond, Tex Williams, Spade Cooley, Cal Worthington, Tex Carmen, and the Collins Kids etc. I was able to relive my childhood in this thorough treatment of the evolution of country music in Southern California. A must read for anyone of the 40s, 50s, and 60s generation.
