Oklahoma has no shortage of tall tales chock-full of truth, however unlikely it might seem. Puzzle over Geronimo’s three skulls. Examine the beer bottle that suckered town leaders on April Fools’ Day or join the mad rush of a 100,000-person race. Accompany the governor who went to the White House and boxed the president. Untangle the hideouts and shootouts of notorious outlaws like the Dalton Gang. From Amelia Earhart’s arrest to the croquet mallet that foiled Bonnie and Clyde, funeral director Joe M. Cummings retrieves the kind of lore that gets buried with Oklahoma’s legends.
