What is the corduroy road?Logs laid crosswise, bark to bark, they were a means to an end for the wildcatters that worked at the end of the road on an oil rig.No longer do the corduroy roads sag under tortuous loads to be ground and twisted by the creaking wheels of progress, for now their work is done.

Albeit rotted by time, they are forgotten links in the golden chain of a flourishing new era. Yet, they bound together the destinies of many men, for over them - rugged as they were rugged - traveled the wildcatters famed in the saga of oil. Some of those men obtained their goal and some did not.

To those that did, civilization is indebted beyond measure. They founded the vast petroleum industry. Hailed by his fellows as King of the Wildcatters was Glenn H. McCarthy who traveled the corduroy road to international renown within one short decade. And, along Corduroy Road we find his story.
