The Cherokee Outlet was destined,
mainly, for wheat
culture, but the prairie sod
was first broken by oxen. The
soil was blessed by calcium and
phosphorus, rich beyond the
Imaginings of the Pioneers. (1)

Prettyman could not reconcile large

permanent dwellings, and fences with
Indian life. He therefore spent little time
with the Five Civilized Tribes, but here is

these tribes.(1) (3)
