This was a book I discovered on Litsy and I am so glad I did. It‘s a sad but accurate description of the loss of tribal land/ interests by people more interested in wealth than preserving the culture and rightful heritage of the people living on the land. Crimes committed against a largely defenseless community - it was horrifying. I learned about the lengths people will go to in order to secure wealth. #NFNov, #TIL

Megabooks Loved this one! 6d
Come-read-with-me @Megabooks It was amazing. I saw that it was being read and discussed by a group of people. Couldn‘t resist adding it my TBR list. 6d
UnidragonFrag I loved this one, too, but it was truly horrific. 6d

I believe every person should read this, or at the very least know the story. Such an incredibly sad part of American history and I can't believe I didn't know about it before reading this book. Admittedly at times a bit dry only because it is a non fiction story told by someone who wasn't there. But overall a fascinating book. I applaud the research.

This is a pick because of the tale told within, but not the way it was told. The first section is fascinating and then the book peters out. The text is large and widely spaced with lots of big pictures. The facts get repetitive and occasionally irrelevant. There‘s just not enough material for a 300 page book.

“In the 1920‘s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian Nation in Oklahoma.” And then the murders began.

This was a compelling read but also heartbreaking. The injustice the Osage had/have to endure is just mind boggling. Like Radium Girls, it leaves you staggered at the greed and inhumanity of people.

Final #BOTMBUDDYREAD
Are you glad we read this?
Was it difficult for you?
Did we miss anything you‘d like to discuss?
Do you enjoy nonfiction?

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘m glad we read it, it was a difficult read though... I sadly didn‘t know about this 😞 3w
Librarybelle A difficult read, but a necessary read. Like @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks , I didn‘t know about this. This is part of American history, and I‘m such a firm believer in knowing all you can about the past, as it does shape the future. Thanks ladies for another buddy read! 3w
CoffeeNBooks I don't read much nonfiction, so I wasn't sure I was going to like this book. I'm glad we read it, even though it was such an emotional read. It made me sad, frustrated, and angry, but it was so well-researched and so well-written, that it was a compelling read. And definitely an important story to know about. 3w

TheBookHippie @mrp27 I think it will stay with us. If we all tell one person and share our suggestion to read it I feel it honors them. 3w
