PAGING THROUGH HISTORY

PAGING THROUGH HISTORY

Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann

The Osage Indians were some of the richest people in America after oil was discovered on their land in the 1920s.  Then, the killing began and they were dying one by one.  The newly-formed and very corrupt FBI entered the case and bungled the job – until a young J. Edgar Hoover turned to a former Texas Ranger to unravel the mystery.

As a long-time reader of true crime, criminal justice and Native American history, it is not often I come across a book that contains all of these topics. However, in Killers of the Flower Moon, author David Grann does just that by discussing the murders of more than twenty Osage Indians in the early 20th Century. Furthermore, he explores how the F.B.I. and Texas Rangers struggled to expose one of the most sinister conspiracies in American history.” -- Kevin
