Spratt, John Stricklin
University of Texas Press 1983 029270030X / 9780292700307 2nd Printing Softcover Very Good- Illustrated by Ed Bearden 
The modern oil industry was born on a hill in southeastern Texas. This hill was formed by a giant underground dome of salt as it moved slowly towards the surface. As it crept, it pushed the earth that was in its path higher and higher. This dome was known by several names, but the one that stuck was "Spindletop". Through the latter half of the 19th century, Pennsylvania had been the most oil-productive state in the country. All that changed on January 10th, 1901. Edgewear, cover crease lower front corner. ; Drawings; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 337 pages; 13499
