It is no secret that Oklahoma is not the most popular state in America. To be honest, not many know too much about our way of life. Legendary images from literature and film have created the mistaken belief that the state is simply a desolate wasteland. Nothing could be further from reality. Oklahoma is a land of striking contrasts; there are majestic vistas, expansive high plains, lush forests and more miles of shoreline along its man-made lakes than the Atlantic and Gulf coasts combined.
The state has the largest American Indian population in the country with more than two hundred fifty thousand people representing sixty-seven tribes. At more than fifty-seven hundred feet, the highest elevation is Black Mesa in the northwest corner of the state's panhandle. Oklahoma is bordered by six states; Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas. Essentially, the state is broken down into five regions by directional quadrant, i.e. northwest and southeast, with the fifth region being central. Oklahoma City is in the central region and is the state's capital. The population is thriving at approximately six hundred thousand.
Like the state, this city is basically divided into quadrants. Northwest Oklahoma City lies west of Interstate 235 and north of Interstate 40. It is a prosperous sector of the city incorporating around fifty-five square miles. Edmond is an affluent suburban community thirteen miles north of Oklahoma City.
