Readers love it!

“Absolutely outstanding! I love the format and that this is an inter-generational book. America worships youth; however, you have the elders as the great sources of knowledge. The images and information are great. Great job.” -- Dr. Linda Henshall Wilson, Professor, College of Education, Northeastern State University

“This graphic novel, hopefully to be followed by others, can nurture curiosity, illustrate the path to seeking answers, and enrich the lives of young people as they develop into adults. I want to thank Kathryn Shurden and Mandy Brumley for taking the time and resources to create this innovative tool for teaching. Yes, the way we teach Oklahoma history has long been a subject of complaint. This book will help solve the problem.” -- Bob L. Blackburn, Ph.D., Oklahoma Historical Society

“We liked how the book was very inclusive of the different races and told their viewpoints of Oklahoma History as they took journeys to different landmarks in the state. It provided more information than most Oklahoma History Books!” -- Jay Fife, Oklahoma High School Student

“Your story unfolds clearly and should make a good lesson about the road to statehood. Congratulations on a great project! -- Dr. William Corbett
