In addition to special memories of Drumright, this book relates the early days of Shamrock, Oilton, Pemeta, and Olive, and of communities such as Frey, Crow, Markham, and Villa that are no longer on the maps. More than 200 rare pictures, nearly all unpublished, tell much of the story.  Some of the information about the people mentioned is pre-1912.

She takes the reader on a walk through Sapulpa down Route 66, from Liberty Glass to the Golf Course.  I could see all the people in town on Saturdays.  The line at the movie theatre and smell the food from Carl's Pig Stand; Wimpy's, etc. and those wonderful Spudnut Donuts. Remember The Beacon beacon dogs?
