Like earlier editions, the Atlas describes Oklahoma’s landforms and natural resources and traces the state’s geographic history from the earliest hunter-gatherer bands to today’s mostly urban inhabitants. New to this edition are maps exploring additional aspects of the state’s economy and its diverse society, politics, and culture, such as black history, women’s experiences, and the musicians, writers, and other artists identified with the state. Reflecting the most up-to-date information as of 2005 from the U.S. Census Bureau and other sources, this new edition of the Historical Atlas of Oklahoma will be an invaluable resource for scholars, teachers, students, and any reader who wants to know more about the history of Oklahoma.
Created by cartographer James H. Anderson, more than 170 maps—in full color—chart Oklahoma’s rich and varied history and current population trends.
