Oil in Their Blood: the American Decades by Herman K. Trabish

Oil in Their Blood: the American Decades


Oil in Their Blood: the American Decades by Herman K. Trabish

This historical fiction, the second in the multivolume saga, is a matriarch's remembrance of three generations during America's rise to power in the oil world and on the world stage. From the end of The Great War through the beginning of The Cold War, with an unforgettable adventure into the heart of World War II, this story visits Paris, Roaring 20s Chicago, oil boom Oklahoma, pre-war Arabia, wartime Europe and Cold War Iran. With lean, muscular prose, and relentless storytelling, Trabish makes OIL IN THEIR BLOOD: The American Decades another fascination of fact, adventure, romance and melodrama, as he again drills for metaphysical and stark cold truths about love, family, war, oil and America's addiction to it.
