My favorite part of this book was undoubtedly chapter 4 when David Grann gives the reader some back story about the forced movement of Osage to a sector of Oklahoma that had hidden riches under the hills. The Thomas Jefferson quote! The Osage representative in the red blanket! Wow. The true crime tale from the 20s which centered around Mollie Burkhart’s family were fascinating too as was the development of the FBI.

Look for this book and similar titles in the nonfiction section around call number 976 (American History)
