Killers of the Flower Moon - The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI - David Grann - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Killers of the Flower Moon:

The FBI finds the Guardians who murdered the Osage for their oil.

My favorite David Grann quote from the book:

"History is a merciless judge."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Have you ever been to Pawhuska?

Do you believe in guardianships?

My review of Killers of the Flower Moon:

An in-depth look at an overlooked part of American history.

A truly tragic story.

Impeccably researched.
