**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.… (altro)

"Killers of the Flower Moon" by David Grann

My Perception:

'Killers of the Flower Moon' was quite a sad read of what happened to the Osage people a hundred years ago. I was left saying, wow... this occurred in the U.S. Can one believe this? Are we finally seeing how there is so much evil and corruption in our American government that happened so long ago still going on in some form, even today? Oh yes, I can. I am an Afro-American, and I know it has happened here in the U.S. not only to my race but to other races, too. Thank you to this author for bringing this story about the Osage people to light.

This author did an excellent job explaining what happened in 'The Reign of Terror and the Osage Murders of Killers of the Flower Moon.' David Grann's research, recordings, documents, and photographs were very well presented, giving the reader quite a good read.

What gets me is how these people [white] got away with this for so long. Oh, no, really, we know why that happened! It was so good to finally see things come to a head, only to find out later that there was still important information that had not been presented. Now, what was left out? This is where you must pick up this read to see what that was and how it was brought out. But was anything done about it? Oh, I know, it was too late; they all were dead by then! Thank God for the wonderful character, Tom White, an FBI agent who cared; I will leave it at that.

This story was an alarming piece of history that some wouldn't want to come to light, but it did! The reader will see how the Osage people were horribly treated by [white] people, which left me .. well, I will stop here. All that is left to say is this has happened not only to the Osage but to many other races. All that is left to say is that this is the America we live in, like it or not.

A well told tale of mutiny and heroism on the high seas in the eighteenth century. An American author decries British colonial ambitions of the time.

This was a fantastic book that was difficult to put down. I'm a sucker for sea-books and this one did not disappoint.

While this is a non-fiction account its narrative reads like the most fantastical of stories. The sea truly brings out the best (and worst) of us which makes for compelling reading. The chapters come at you in short bursts that keep the intrigue without skimming over things.

Scattered amongst the drama are the nuggets of maritime anecdotes that will impress your sea loving guests and fill your trivia armory. I now know where the phrase "under the weather" comes from and I'm excited to share it with unsuspecting dinner guests.

But there is a lot of substance to this book. There is a lot to learn from this particular history, on human nature and overcoming struggle, on how we have progressed since that time or the fact that we haven't.
