In the late 1800’s the Osage Indian tribe was forced onto unwanted reservation land in a seemingly undesirable part of Oklahoma. However, oil was later discovered below that land and by the 1920’s the members of the Osage Indian nation were the richest people per capita in the world.
Then the murders started. All of the sudden Osage Indians were being killed off at an alarming rate. Mollie Burkhart, an Osage woman at the center of the story, watched as her relatives were gunned down and poisoned. As the number killed continued to grow, it became apparent something very big and evil was happening.
This haunting true story of the disappearing Wild West is a thrilling read. As the murder count passed 24 people, the FBI decided to take over. It was the organizations’ first large-scale homicide investigation and frankly it was pretty sloppy. As a last resort, J. Edgar Hoover handed the case to a couple former Texas Rangers and the first American Indian agent in hopes they could navigate the tricky web of oilmen, desperados and Native Americans surrounding the murders. They unearthed one of the most cold-blooded conspiracies of the time.
In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann shows his true investigative prowess in digging up old as well as new information on the murders. The story was not finished. The book also shows the social history of that time, and the extreme prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the killings to go on for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is a page turning thriller that reveals some shockingly sad history about our country. Available here on amazon
