qProud to be an Okie is a fresh, well-researched, wonderfully insightful, and imaginative book. Throughout, La Chapelle's keen attention to shifting geographies and urban and suburban spaces is one of the work's real strengths. Another strength is the book's focus on dress, ethnicity, and the manufacturing of style. When all of these angles and insights are pulled together, La Chapelle delivers a fascinating rendering of Okie life and American culture.q--Bryant Simon, author of Boardwalk of Dreams: Atlantic City and the Fate of Urban AmericaNancy P.Herpolsheimer, personal correspondence with author, 15 August 2001, Oceanside, California; Marcy D. ... from L.A.
