Truman Tucker helped tame No Man's Land. He didn't do it with a gun. He worked far more often with a pen or a whisk broom. He wasn't a gun fighter but tamed the land as a rancher, writer and historian. Walking the rough country in the shadow of Black Mesa in the far western Oklahoma Panhandle, Tucker spent many decades undearthing fossils and relics and then telling the tale with a prolific pen. As he lived in the land that had known dinosaurs, pre-historic tribes and infamous outlaws, Tucker's pen never lacked subject matter.
Tucker grew up during the turn of the 20th Century in Cimarron County, Oklahoma. For many years today's Oklahoma Panhandle lay unclaimed by any state, and Tucker lived in the shadow of outlaws and lawmen alike. The story of his life gives breath to the taming of a wild and rough country. It is also the story of a resilient people with a way of life and thinking that hold precious truths, even to this day.
