Geosi Interviews Fifty Writers World Wide

by Jeanetta Calhoun Mish

Oklahomeland welcomes you to the real Oklahoma, the Oklahoma not of a musical but of sweat-stained people, of a raw land of raw emotions. Mish is foremost a storyteller whose compelling narratives and imagery entice us into caring as much as she does. You can take a walk with a little girl and her Grandpa or drive down a rural highway, always connected with the land. Even more scholarly subjects become conversations Mish holds with passion and fire, whether about Woody Guthrie or lynchings in her hometown.

Read a review of Oklahomeland by Robert Murray Davis for Southwestern American Literature, Spring 2016.
