Part-Cherokee like his Claremore, Oklahoma predecessor Will Rogers, Lynn Riggs (1899-1954) is best known as the father of the play Oklahoma!, which in 1943 was adapted from his original Broadway Production called Green Grow the Lilacs. This is his second volume of poems, sonnets and lyrics about loyalty, love, kindness, loneliness, war and wisdom collected from those he published in many popular magazines during his lifetime. They reveal a sensitive, literate man of the world who had a compulsion to tell the Oklahoma story, which is the story of mankind: a man who during his lifetime was understood least by those who affected his life most. Biographical introductions by Phyllis Braunlich, writer and instructor at Oral Roberts University. Two-color Western drawings created for illustrations by the late Oklahoma artist Ray Piercey.
