[read online Prime] OklahomelandAuthor Jeanetta Calhoun Mish – Albawater.co

Oklahomeland welcomes you to the real Oklahoma, the Oklahoma not of a musical but of sweat stained people, of a raw land and emotions Jeanetta Calhoun Mish is foremost a story teller whose compelling narratives and imagery entice you 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 the scholarly subjects are conversations told with passion and fire, whether about Woody Guthrie or lynchings in her hometown It s fitting she chose a quote from another writer of much emotional power, William Faulkner, for the title of the essay, Like a Fire in Dry Grass, for when Mish writes about Oklahoma s people and causes, she is also like a fire in dry grass
