Senior Book Talk : Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann
Join the discussion!
A finalist for the 2017 National Book Award, Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI explores the horrific deaths that took place on the Osage Indian Reservation in the 1920s. Thanks to oil found on their reservation, members of the Osage Indian Nation enjoyed lives of prosperity. But between 1921 and 1926, the tribe was the target of a sequence of mysterious murders. When the FBI stepped in to investigate, J. Edgar Hoover sought help from an ex-Texas Ranger named Tom White, who assembled a group of undercover agents. What they uncovered was a shocking plot that left more than 24 people dead.
