This is a must-read for American history lovers! “Killers of the Flower Moon” tells the story of the murders of Osage Indians in Oklahoma during the early 1900’s. At the same time, it is the story of the founding of the Federal Bureau of Investigation under the direction of J. Edgar Hoover. This story is at once a sad one because of the blatant abuse of the Indians, but also an example of how tenacious FBI investigators can be when trying to right a wrong. David Grann has done an excellent job of telling the story which at times reads almost like a novel. The depth of his research is obvious as he chronicles every step of the investigation. A very well written expose of a little corner of American history.
