Publisher Description

A true story of greed and murder of Native Americans by their countrymen

Journalist Dennis McAuliffe Jr. grew up believing that his Osage Indian grandmother, Sybil Bolton, had died an early death in 1925 from kidney disease. It was only by chance that he learned the real cause was a gunshot wound, and that her murder may well have been engineered by his own grandfather.

As McAuliffe peeled away layers of suppressed history, he learned that Sybil was a victim of the "Osage Reign of Terror"—a systematic killing spree in the 1920s when white men descended upon the oil-rich Osage reservation to court, marry, and murder Native women to gain control of their money.

The Deaths of Sybil Bolton is part murder mystery, part family memoir, and part spiritual journey.

A journey through time and psyche

Excellent and well-written from a Native perspective. The author is Osage and this book follows his deeply personal quest to find the truth of his grandmothers death during the 1920s in Pawhuska, OK.
