A Pike, in the California dialect, is a native of Missouri, Arkansas, Northern Texas, or Southern Illinois. The first emigrants that came over the plains were from Pike County, Missouri; but as the phrase, ‘a Pike County man,’ was altogether too long for this short life of ours, it was soon abbreviated into ‘a Pike.’

While Pickstown may not be what it once was, it still is framed by the natural beauty of the ancient river, the sweep of the Great Plains, and the long, unbroken shoreline of the lake behind the dam.

I understood it was a poor area when I was young because you’re driving through it and you see these low-income homes that I hadn’t really seen before.
