More than a century ago, a lovely young Georgia aristocrat named Jane Carroll Heard came to the Indian Territory. She was the bride of Fred Severs Clinton, a handsome blue-eyed blond who was part Creek Indian, from the village of Red Fork on the Arkansas River. Their union was not only a lifetime affair of the heart, but an alliance of remarkable talents and abilities which would play a major role in transforming the little frontier village of Tulsey Town, I.T., into a booming mid-American city known as "The Oil Capital of the World." This is the story of Jane Heard Clinton, and of the people and values that molded her character and influenced her life. It is also the story of her life with her beloved Fred, and of the city they helped to build at the bend of the Arkansas River.
