On August 1923 a gusher blew in, forever changing the lives of an Oklahoma farming community. Witness the birth and death of Papoose City, also known as Slick City. Experience the discovery of oil and the building of a gasoline plant. Then walk through the process of reclaiming the many acres of land damaged in the search for black gold. Follow the people who lived and worked there. Get to know Mattie who loved to dance, Gertie who worked at the boarding house to be near her sweetheart, and P. J. who picked up rivets to pay for his college education. Meet Tom Slick, Waite Phillips, and Frank Phillips, oilmen who were instrumental in the development of the Papoose Oilfield.
