The Broken Statue (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 11 jul 2011
Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Buried in the red soil of the Oklahoma prairie is a stone statue of a striking young woman broken into a hundred pieces-a broken statue representing shattered lives and crushed dreams. The story of the statue is one of love, greed, power, and lost aspirations. The statue symbolizes what was and what could have been-a tale of a great oil empire betrayed, destroying the lives of the family who built it. The Broken Statue is an intriguing story based on the real-life legacy of the Marland Mansion and the statue still located within its walls. E.W. Marland's spectacular rise to power and the tragic legend of Lydie Marland featured extraordinary characters representing opportunities and opportunities lost during the gilded age of the early oil industry.

down until I had finished reading the whole book! The historic information and
the characters were supposed to be fictional, but it coincided with actual history and people so that it made it really exciting. I would highly recommend it to any one, especially history buffs, interested in early days of Oklahoma.
Bob Perry has several other books, and we purchased them at a book signing prior to purchasing
The Broken Statue from Amazon. They were all great!!!!
