Blog Post:  Oklahoma was formed in 1907 after land runs provided settlers with claims. But, drought set in during the 1930s, and dust storms and lack of work sent many Okies fleeing. Today, cattle and wheat farming have recovered, and oil and gas wells have sprung up throughout the state. Some tallgrass prairie areas still exist and bison still graze on those areas. The Red River forms the state's southern boundary, while High Plains are found in the panhandle area.
