In its early days, the oil industry was a wild and wide-open way of making a living. It developed a stock of folklore about the men who worked in it, the way they worked, and the results of their labors. Folklorist Mody C. Boatright gathered material from the oil-fields for many years. Illustrations by William D. Witliff.
