Book Description

Sept. 1 2006
Published in conjunction with the Oklahoma Centennial in 2007, Oklahoma 3, provides a unique and colorful portrayal of one of the most diverse and beautiful states in the country. Oklahoma is the American West. Rich with history, it is a place where cultures meet, a place were there is a strong interconnection between the people and the land. Award-winning photographer and Oklahoma native David Fitzgerald has dedicated his life to capturing the splendor of this distinctive place. In Oklahoma 3, Fitzgerald eclipses his work in his first two odes to the state: Oklahoma and Oklahoma II. From rugged Black Mesa to the Red River Valley, from windswept plains to verdant mountains of pine forests and cedar, Oklahoma boasts a varied beauty unlike any other. Jane Jayroe provides a moving personal tribute to her native state. Using Oklahoma's rich musical history as a framework, Jayroe encapsulates the essence of the place while providing insider's knowledge of Oklahoma's rich heritage. OKLAHOMA 3 is the official selection of the Oklahoma Centennial Commemoration Commission.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steinbeck would have been proud Dec 11 2006
By Charles M. Nobles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The publisher of this wonderful book, based in Portland, Oregon, has a well deserved reputation for producing quality coffee-table style books. They published two prior volumes on Oklahoma to wide acclaim and have watched as they became collectors items. However, with this book they have truly outdone themselves. This is an absolutely gorgeous testament to Oklahoma's stunning beauty and diversity and, if that's not enough, it is being released just in time to commemorate the upcoming Oklahoma Centennial celebration.

Where to begin? For starters, the book is filled front to back with spectacular full color photographs of both the cities and countryside of Oklahoma by none other than the award winning photographer David Fitzgerald. For over 40 years he has been documenting the incomparable beauty of Oklahoma in both the two previous volumes and indeed, in venues nationwide. The photo of the new state Capitol Dome is priceless and the myriad pictures of the geographical diversiaty of the state serve as both a reminder of, and source of pride in, Oklahoma's rich heritage.

Not to be outdone is the text provided by former Miss Oklahoma and Miss America (1967) Jane Jayroe. She is a former television personality and stays true to her journalistic training by providing a highly readable, entertaining and informative essay on the contents of the book. From Western Oklahoma through Central to Eastern and all places in-between the reader is taken on an almost magical trip both in pictures and text of a place I call home, Oklahoma!

Oklahoma has come a long ways from the scenes depicted in Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath. He would be proud.
