This book really touched me in more way than you can imagine. I felt the deep sorrow toward Osage tribe, and how US government created a situation for greedy people to take advantage of many minorities in the US. People should read and learn from this book. ( )

SUMMARY/ EVALUATION:
SELECTED: When the movie came ‘out, my friend, Isa, mentioned she would be seeing the movie and had read this book twice.
ABOUT: In the 20th century, land (including mineral rights) that had been considered worthless and so had been assigned to the Osage Nation in Oklahoma, was discovered to have oil. The Osage nation, therefor, were supposed to reap the benefits, but Caucasians sought every means possible to take the rights from them. These means included becoming guardians under the auspices that an Osage was not competent (especially with the women), marrying them to share their wealth, murder, contriving fake debts and deeds upon the death of an Osage, and more.
OVERALL OPINION: This book is an interesting and thorough account of the situation and deaths of countless Osage Natives, as well as of many of those involved in the Osage peoples’ deaths, and with the investigations of them.

AUTHOR: David Grann: Excerpts from Wikipedia:
“David Elliot Grann (born March 10, 1967) is an American journalist, a staff writer for The New Yorker, and author.
His first book, The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, was published by Doubleday in February 2009. After its first week of publication, it debuted on The New York Times bestseller list at #4[1] and later reached #1.[2] Grann's articles have been collected in several anthologies, including What We Saw: The Events of September 11, 2001, The Best American Crime Writing of 2004 and 2005, and The Best American Sports Writing of 2003 and 2006.[3] He has written for The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The Weekly Standard.[3]
According to a profile in Slate, Grann has a reputation as a "workhorse reporter", which has made him a popular journalist who "inspires a devotion in readers that can border on the obsessive."[4]
Early life
Grann was born on March 18, 1967, to Phyllis E. Grann and Victor Grann. His mother is the former CEO of Putnam Penguin and the first woman CEO of a major publishing firm.[5] His father is an oncologist and Director of the Bennett Cancer Center in Stamford, Connecticut. Grann has two siblings, Edward and Alison.[6]”

*So which is it, March 10 or March 18 (birth)? I will be looking into his other books either way. ( )

Well researched and written book about the mistreatment of the Osage people. It was an interesting look at the beginnings of the FBI and also the investigative research completed by the author long after the fact. Much better than the movie. ( )

For years Native Americans were forced off their lands and relocated. The Osage Nation wound up in a rocky, infertile area of northeast Oklahoma. That would normally be the end of story, except the land turned out to be rich in oil. Then, one by one, generation after generation of Osage people were systematically killed for their land rights. The majority of murders were never solved, and the few who were found guilty, never served their full sentence. David Grann documents a web of conspiracy spanning decades and killing hundreds.

The book was an eye opener for me, showcasing the prevalence of greed in our society. A shocking example of corruption, depravity, and discrimination on all levels. Crimes that were washed away with time, this is a story that needs be told and lessons learned from it. In the words of a descendant of a victim, "The blood cries out from the ground." ( )

**4.5 Star Rating**

This was such an interesting and eye-opening nonfiction story that help continue to share the narrative that the Native people of the Americas are continuously mistreating in the systems we have built in our country. The narrative is split into three sections that helps readers process the story as they unfolded in history. I appreciated the research and time that went into the story, as well as the nod to generation trauma that still impacts the families involved to this day. Very glad I read this book to open my eyes to historical events that are not talked about enough. ( )

De maand van de bloemendoder is een fascinerend en tegelijkertijd gruwelijk boek over de moordpartijen, discriminatie en uitbuiting van Osage indianen aan het begin van de 20e eeuw in Oklahoma. Nadat de Osage, zoals zoveel indianen in de Verenigde Staten, waren verjaagd naar een reservaat in Oklahoma, bleek hier olie gevonden te worden. Hierdoor werden de Osage opeens rijk. Echter dit betekende ook uitbuiting, discriminatie en vele moordpartijen. David Grann is jarenlang bezig geweest met onderzoek naar misstanden die plaatsvonden en De maand van de bloemendoder is het zeer boeiende eindresultaat hiervan...lees verder >

There had been no evil to mar that propitious night, because she had listened; there had been no voice of evil; no screech owl had quaveringly disturbed the stillness. She knew this because she had listened all night.
—John Joseph Mathews, Sundown
A conspiracy is everything that ordinary life is not. It's the inside game, cold, sure, undistracted, forever closed off to us. We are the flawed ones, the innocents, trying to make some rough sense of the daily jostle. Conspirators have a logic and a daring beyond our reach. All conspiracies are the same taut story of men who find coherence in some criminal act.  —Don DeLillo, Libra
We have a few mouth-to-mouth tales; we exhume from old trunks and boxes and drawers letters without salutation or signature, in which men and women who once lived and breathed are now merely initials or nicknames out of some now incomprehensible affection which sound to us like Sanskrit or Chocktaw; we see dimly people, the people in whose living blood and seed we ourselves lay dormant and waiting, in this shadowy attenuation of time possessing now heroic proportions performing their acts of simple passion and simple violence, impervious to time and inexplicable. —William Faulker, Absalom, Absalom!

Perhaps because he witnessed this—and other executions—or perhaps because he had seen the effect of the ordeal on his father, or perhaps because he feared the system could doom an innocent man, Tom grew to oppose what was then sometimes called “judicial homicide.” And he came to see the law as a struggle to subdue the violent passions not only in others but also in oneself.
