Killers of the flower moon

Post by Dana » Thu May 25, 2017 12:49 am

My new read is by david grann. The book is a true story about murders on the osage reservation in oklahoma during the 1920's. This is one of the fbi's first big cases. The area was considered one of the last bations of the wild west. On a rifleman note, mr. Grann refers to small pox epidemics in oklahoma during the 1870's .
