Believing that his knowledge will be worth something to people seeking homes in the new country, he decided to put his memories into a book. When he speaks of any part of this country it is not hearsay, it is what he actually knew from his own experiences. 

Mr. Puckett at the writing of this book, 1906, still owned a good farm twelve miles southwest of Vinita with over 300 acres.
