Wonderful Read

Excellent book. Could not put it down.

Great book, unbelievable story

This book was recommended to me and I probably would never have come across this if it weren't for that recommendation. I am certainly glad I read this book, it opens a window to the past and sheds light on an unbelievable account of love, crime, and deceit.

Phenomenal

I'm not typically a fan of non-fiction, but this was written in such a way that it's almost like reading a fictional book, at the same time you're learning so much about this horrific past and what happened to the Osage people at this time.

Eye opening tragic American Injustice

This story is well detailed and a real page turner. I learned so much about our history regarding the early 20th century west, the birth of the FBI and the terrible fate of many in the Osage Nation. A dark picture of human greed and murder.

Part of our history unknown to me

Narrative nonfiction done so well. Gripping, sad, revealing.

One of my favorites! It's been read by 2 of my favorite people... My wife and daughter! Hard to put
