New Book Celebrates the History of Oklahoma Panhandle

Vintage photographs and captions show Oklahoma’s Panhandle in a new light.
July 5, 2011 - PRLog -- The Oklahoma Panhandle, a new book illustrating the history of the region through vintage photographs and captions dating back to the late 1800s, will be published July 25, 2011.

The book, written by Oklahoma Panhandle State University professor Sara Jane Richter, tells the tales of outlaws, college students, settlers, ranchers, native peoples, dust storms, immigrants, ghost towns, cattle, dinosaurs, lawmen, soldiers, and traders.

“I have always wanted to promote the Panhandle, and with this book, I can finally do that!” Richter said. “The Panhandle is full of interesting people and has a lot of fascinating history.”

Although the Panhandle often doesn't get the attention that it deserves, its history is full of stories interesting to people across the state, Richter added.

The Oklahoma Panhandle will be available July 25, 2011 at area bookstores, independent retailers, online retailers, and through Arcadia Publishing at (888) 313-2665 or
