A New Book Unveils a Remarkable Life: "Bobby BlueJacket: The Tribe, The Joint, The Tulsa Underworld"
"Bobby BlueJacket: The Tribe, The Joint, The Tulsa Underworld" is a just-published book exploring little-known aspects of American crime, Native American identity, and smalltown politics in the 20th century. It's also a biography of a real and remarkable person: Bobby BlueJacket, born in 1930, who grew up amid teenage rumbles, mean streets, dangerous pool halls, and Midwest safecracker crews -- and who actually went from being a career thief to a prison journalist to a Eastern Shawnee Indian activist. Our guests on ST today are Michael P. Daley, the author of this new book, and Mr. BlueJacket himself. Please note that both will appear at a signing and reading this coming Saturday afternoon (the 3rd) at Magic City Books in downtown Tulsa.
