    Lone Man’s Land takes viewers on a visual road trip to Kenton, Oklahoma, population 20, and follows the Apple family through a decade of hardship including 2014 when a family crisis creates a major change. Six miles from Colorado and three miles from New Mexico, Kenton is a quiet retirement community that’s proved to be a perfect home to cattle ranchers for five generations. Until now.

  • This Land Press- The Burning Bush

    • Reporter / Journalist
    • Editorial Photographer / Photojournalist

    In the aftermath of the Creek County fires—during another triple-digit stretch in an already parched Oklahoma—This Land contributing editor Sheilah Bright went to work. With her camera and her pen, and with the insight that only a longtime Creek County correspondent could bring, she captured a land on fire and a life torn asunder.

  • The Last of Kenton

    • Reporter / Journalist

    A chance encounter with a town of 20 people evolved into an obsession that kept me driving the backroads of Oklahoma as Dust Bowl survivors opened their lives for a story about loss, hope and dirt.
