Oil field fiction – 1940s-50s

Oil field fiction.  Bright Danger (1941), Black Gold (1950), and When Oil Ran Red (1952).

Bright Danger includes the fictional towns of Beauport and Saragossa; most probably taken from the Texas boomtowns of Beaumont and Saratoga.  A “vigorous yarn about one of the most dangerous jobs in the world – the job of putting out oil well fires.” (Bright Danger)
