Description


Towana Spivey, retired historian and archeologist, examines water wells at six well-known, nineteenth-century historic sites in southern Oklahoma: Fort Towson, Fort Washita, the Chickasaw White House, the Chickasaw National Capitol, the Kiowa and Comanche Commissary at Fort Sill, and the former home site of Quanah Parker, the famous Comanche leader. Drawing on his hands-on professional experience at each site, Spivey investigates how each water source tied communities together and made a lasting impact on the histories of Native Americans and Indian Territory.
