    One thought on “Pappy's Handkerchief: A Tale Of The Oklahoma Land Run”

    1. Though this was historical fiction, it was based on true facts about the Oklahoma Land Run in 1889. I find the subject always fascinating, especially since, in our family history,it is known that my relatives made the Oklahoma Run in 1889.

    2. Fun read!My son, 8, enjoyed reading it for homeschool while we studied about Oklahoma. It helped him understand that part of history better.

    3. "Slavery is over, and we're free now. But in America a man isn't really free until he owns the land he lives on."Pappy's Handkerchief is the story of the American expansion West in the eyes of African Americans. Moses and his family are barely scraping by working in their fish stall near Baltimore harbor, selling the fish that they catch. Word goes around that there will be a land grab in Oklahoma, Indian Territory, and it means a new start for those that want it. After a rigorous ride, and an a [...]

    4. This is a well-told story about a former slave family taking part in the Land Rush of Oklahoma, through the eyes of the eldest son. Fish mongering in Baltimore wasn't brining home enough money to feed the family, so the father decided to sell all they own to buy a wagon and two horses to make the long treck to Oklahoma. It choked me up, but I'm sentimental about stuff like this.A great read for elementary teachers and their classes.

    5. This long picture book tells the story of a black family that takes a chance in the Oklahoma land runs and how a little boy saved the farm for the family. The pictures were great and fit the mood of the book well!

    6. Some kids' picture books are really good and have some substance to their stories. This is such a book. It's the story of a family working to get a free plot of land in the late 1800's. An almost tragic story with a triumphant ending.
