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.

narrative nonfiction digital audio (~2 hrs) after lots of men perish on their expedition through Antartica, why not try a solo trip to the same end, without even sled dogs or prearranged emergency ration drops? It may have been completely idiotic but Grann tells a good (if relatively short) story.

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.
