Oilman is a historical fiction based on the people and events from the Alberta oil patch. Author Robert Mclean worked on oil rigs while attending university and he draws on the characters he knew or heard about to write a gripping fast paced novel. If you want to step back in time to 1948 Alberta, you must read this book. Follow Billy Cochrane from the day he quit school in grade 11 to find work in the Leduc oil discovery, to eventually fight, claw, drink and above all, work his way to becoming a colossus in the industry. Fame and fortune, alas, comes at a price!
