Oil: Titan of the Southwest

  • Here is the story of the discovery and production of oil in this rich domain, embracing the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico. More than a history of the development of an industry, this absorbing narrative relates the rise of the giant corporations, the struggles of the independents, the adoption of scientific methods, and the emergence of controls.
