About the Author:

Bob Burke has written more historical non-fiction books than anyone else in history. His more than 100 books are all about Oklahoma's incredible heritage. Born in Broken Bow, Oklahoma, he was director of a large state agency in Governor David Boren's administration and managed Boren's first campaign for the U. S. Senate. He is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma City University School of Law. Burke, a member of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame, and the Oklahoma Historians Hall of Fame, has earned numerous awards for his writing. He is the father of Robert, Amy, and Cody, stepfather of Natalie, Lauren, and Calli, and grandfather of Nathan, Jon, Ridge, Fallon and Greyson. He and his wife Chimene live in Oklahoma City where he practices law and writes books. Ryan Leonard is a fourth-generation native of Beaver in the Oklahoma Panhandle. An avid historian and attorney, Leonard began his career as a legislative assistant to former U. S. Senator Don Nickles in Washington, D.C., returned to serve as a state prosecutor in Canadian County, and presently is in the private practice of law in Oklahoma City. Leonard is active in public and civic affairs across the state and serves as a commissioner representing Oklahoma on the national Uniform Law Commission.
