From the Inside Flap:

The traveling Texas armadillo Bluebonnet is on the road again! This time, her travels take her to Kilgore, Texas, the home of one of the largest oil fields in the world. As soon as she arrives, Bluebonnet meets her four nephews--Wildcatter, Bradford, Hunt, and Lloyd--who tell her about their oil-industry namesakes. Bluebonnet is eager to learn more, and before she can say "Boomtown, U.S.A.," her nephews whisk her away to the East Texas Oil Museum for another adventure in history.

At the museum, the armadillos visit the towns of East Texas as they were in the 1930s, when oil was discovered. They venture below the surface of the earth to learn about how fossils created oil, witness oil gushers shooting high into the air, and feel the ground tremble beneath them as they experience firsthand the excitement of the oil boom.
Bluebonnet at the East Texas Oil Museum is a wonderful introduction to the East Texas Oil Museum and makes an ideal souvenir or travel companion for young visitors and anyone curious about East Texas and the oil industry.
