Bloodland: A Family Story of Oil, Greed and Murder on the Osage Reservation. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Journalist Dennis McAuliffe, Jr. opens old family wounds and ultimately exposes a widespread murder conspiracy and shameful episode in American history.
Book Description: Part murder mystery, part family memoir, & part spiritual journey, this book reveals many layers of greed & deception. Skillfully written by a seasoned Washington Post journalist, the book unearths family secrets & ultimately exposes a systematic murder plot. In the 1920's, oil was found on the Osage reservation, transforming the tribe into the wealthiest population in the world. Tribe members attended the most exclusive finishing schools, owned expensive automobiles, & dressed in the finest fashions of the era. Strangers descended upon the region, marrying Osage women in an attempt to gain control over the newfound wealth. Many of the new brides died mysteriously shortly after their weddings. The author's young & beautiful grandmother, Sybil Bolton, was among the last of the murdered brides. Eventually, the author is forced to suspect that his own grandfather engineered her murder. The term bloodland describes one's place of origin or homeland. While investigating his grandmother's life & death, the author undergoes a personal & spiritual renewal, finding an integrated identity as a mixed-blood Native American.
