Book Summary:

From "New Yorker" staff writer David Grann, #1 "New York Times" best-selling author of "The Lost City of Z, " a twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian Nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, the Osage rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, they began to be killed off. One Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, watched as her family was murdered. Her older sister was shot. Her mother was then slowly poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more Osage began to die under mysterious circumstances. In this last remnant of the Wild West where oilmen like J. P. Getty made their fortunes and where desperadoes such as Al Spencer, the Phantom Terror, roamed virtually anyone who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered. As the death toll surpassed more than twenty-four Osage, the newly created F.B.I. took up the case, in what became one of the organization s first major homicide investigations. But the bureau was then notoriously corrupt and initially bungled the case. Eventually the young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to try unravel the mystery. White put together an undercover team, including one of the only Native American agents in the bureau. They infiltrated the region, struggling to adopt the latest modern techniques of detection. Together with the Osage they began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history. In "Killers of the Flower Moon, "David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. The book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward Native Americans that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. "Killers of the Flower Moon" is utterly riveting, but also emotionally devastating."

This book is not intended to replace the original book. Instead, we highly encourage you to buy the full version. During the 1920s, the world's wealthiest people per capita were the Osage Indians of Oklahoma. Upon the discovery of oil underneath their lands, they built their own mansions, were driven around by chauffeurs in their own automobiles, and enrolled their children to expensive European schools. That is, until the richest of them were killed off one by one. It was evident that the primary target had been the family of one female Osage member named Mollie Burkhart—her sister was shot and her mother poisoned. The deaths in Mollie Burkhart's family mark the beginning of a series of gruesome murders, each Osage death just as suspicious as the last. Set in what remains of the Wild West—where oilmen like J. P. Getty himself had secured his immense fortune—those who had the guts to uncover the mysteries of the Osage murders had their fates sealed just as well. The FBI finally took over the case when the body count rose to over two dozen. The investigation was the Bureau's first big homicide case, and they had botched it well. Young J. Edgar Hoover was director at the time, and he was desperate. He sought the help of Tom White, a former Texas Ranger, to resolve the case once and for all. White assembled a team of undercover agents, including the Bureau's sole American Indian agent. The team infiltrated the county, knowing full well that being compromised will cost them their lives. White, the agents, and the Osage come together to reveal the truth behind one of America's most sordid conspiracies throughout history. Killers of the Flower Moon sheds light on the long-kept conspiracy that ordered the murder of more than two dozens of Osage members. David Grann's narrative nonfiction is based upon several years of deep research and shocking new evidence. Each piece of information throughout the Bureau's investigation is a step deeper into an intricate web of cover-ups. More importantly, Killers of the Flower Moon illustrates the prejudice and antipathy towards Native Americans which granted the murderers and conspirators impunity all those years ago—even up to this day.

Book Summary:

By the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Killers of the Flower Moon, a powerful true story of adventure and obsession in the Antarctic, lavishly illustrated with color photographs Henry Worsley was a devoted husband and father and a decorated British special forces officer who believed in honor and sacrifice. He was also a man obsessed. He spent his life idolizing Ernest Shackleton, the nineteenth-century polar explorer, who tried to become the first person to reach the South Pole, and later sought to cross Antarctica on foot. Shackleton never completed his journeys, but he repeatedly rescued his men from certain death, and emerged as one of the greatest leaders in history. Worsley felt an overpowering connection to those expeditions. He was related to one of Shackleton's men, Frank Worsley, and spent a fortune collecting artifacts from their epic treks across the continent. He modeled his military command on Shackleton's legendary skills and was determined to measure his own powers of endurance against them. He would succeed where Shackleton had failed, in the most brutal landscape in the world. In 2008, Worsley set out across Antarctica with two other descendants of Shackleton's crew, battling the freezing, desolate landscape, life-threatening physical exhaustion, and hidden crevasses. Yet when he returned home he felt compelled to go back. On November 13, 2015, at age 55, Worsley bid farewell to his family and embarked on his most perilous quest: to walk across Antarctica alone. David Grann tells Worsley's remarkable story with the intensity and power that have led him to be called "simply the best narrative nonfiction writer working today." Illustrated with more than fifty stunning photographs from Worsley's and Shackleton's journeys, The White Darkness is both a gorgeous keepsake volume and a spellbinding story of courage, love, and a man pushing himself to the extremes of human capacity.
