KIRKUS REVIEW

In the story of Rebel Oakes, Mims has presented the contemporary picture of oil in our southern and southwestern districts, -- Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and primarily Louisiana. Oakes' career was a colorful human story of adventure and success and failure and again success, and woven into it are wild cat schemes, intricacies in tracing owners and old leases, amusing bits, pictures of the oil men of the region, a panorama of the whole incredible story, within our own memories. It is a dramatization of the human side of the oil game, popularly handled.
