The Oklahomans -- a Book Review and Signing -- by John J Dwyer
The unforgettable saga of America's last frontier--the Oklahoma Country. Never has the story of this great land and people been told like John tells it. John J Dwyer, historian, professor and author of "The Oklahomans" will chronicle in his presentation the saga of the winning - and losing - of a land. Some of the most famous cowboys, Indians, lawmen, outlaws, and explorers in American history stride across the pages of this unforgettable story. So do some of the country's greatest entrepreneurs, statesmen, Christian ministers, social pioneers, and athletes.

His book, "The Oklahomans -- The Story of Oklahoma and its People" was commissioned by the Oklahoma Historical Society as an official project of the 2007 Oklahoma Centennial Celebration. The book was further honored by winning both the author and publisher gold medals for Western non-fiction at the fourteenth annual Will Rogers Medallion Award banquet, Saturday night, Oct. 28, 2017, in Fort Worth.

Dwyer is a highly sought after speaker and the Museum of Southern Oklahoma is honored to provide this opportunity for the public to enjoy his presentation. Refreshments provided. Admission is FREE. You will have the opportunity to purchase his book and have it signed! Check out this trailer:
