What Oklahoma Means to Me

More than 300 people and Oklahoma City’s two largest TV stations helped launch John’s long-awaited sequel to his Will Rogers Medallion Award-winning “The Oklahomans: The Story of Oklahoma and Its People.” Dr. Bob Blackburn, dean of the state’s historians, declared:

“It is lyrical, inspiring, and rare. There has never been a history of Oklahoma written like what John Dwyer has done. In 100 years, there will be historians looking back on what he has accomplished.”

When John got to the mic on this memorable night, though, it was what Oklahoma meant to him and had done for him that he shared, in addition to introducing a gaggle of the state’s great modern heroes who were present. Find out why he declared, “This state is the only place I ever want to live again.”

“Oklahomans 2,” the epic new saga of Oklahoma’s history from statehood to the 2020s, features 600 pages and 800 images of action-packed color, drama, and inspiration. For more information and to order, including BIG quantity discounts, click HERE.
