Wildcatters: Texas Independent Oilmem
by Roger M. Olien & Diana Davids Hinton

Originally published in 1984, this book tells the story of the West Texas independents as a group, looking at their business strategies in the context of their national, regional, and local conditions.  The focus is on the Permian Basin and southeastern New Mexico over the sixty-year period in which the region rose to prominence on the American oil scene, producing about one-fifth of the nation’s output.  It is a story that covers vast technological change, governmental regulation, and economic fluctuation with profound implications for the oil and gas community.  A new introduction brings the story up-to-date by addressing the role of independents in the current economy.
