Abstract:

The history of the Red River border country is rich, magnificent and barbaric. Like the rugged terrain that sprawls west of the 97th meridian along both banks of the rust-colored water, the love of the land known as Texoma is unique. As with any epic of the American West, it is a proud heritage filled with legends - Cynthia Ann Parker, her son Quanah, the Buffalo Soldiers, Geronimo, Cattle Kings and cowhands on the Chisholm and Western Trails, and more.
