Editorial Reviews

Review

"A kind of treasure trove in its own right for historians and music scholars."--Melissa Ursula Dawn Goldsmith American Music
"La Chapelle (history, Nevada State College) has crafted a unique study of the politics of country music in Southern California from the 1930s onward. . . . Highly recommended."--Choice
"Peter La Chapelle's thoroughly researched, insightful story chronicles that trail bookended by Guthrie and Haggard. . . . Lively and fascinating."--Harp Magazine
"Thoughtful, carefully researched, and well written. . . . Excellent book."--Journal Of American History
"On the road, with a beat."--Kansas City Star
"La Chapelle's many observations are convincing and thought provoking. . . . Highly recommended."--Sing Out
"An engaging, informative, and well-researched book."--Bill C. Malone Western Historical Quarterly
"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
