FAIRFAX, Okla. – Treats now has signed copies of “The Deaths of Sybil Bolton: Oil, Greed, and Murder on the Osage Reservation,” available for purchase.
The book, written by Dennis McAuliffe Jr., Osage writer and editor at the Washington Post, is a gripping testimony of McAuliffe’s journey to investigate the murder of his Osage grandmother Sybil Bolton during the Osage Reign of Terror in 1925 Pawhuska.
The book is a page-turner that will resonate with many Osages. The Chicago Review Press republished the book with a new cover and a new foreword by David Grann, award-winning journalist and author of the bestselling, “Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI.”
The following is an excerpt from Grann’s foreword:
“Through his remarkable research and compassion, he has shed an essential light on this past. His exquisitely written account, “The Deaths of Sybil Bolton,” was first published in 1994, and now has thankfully been reprinted in this new edition by the Chicago Review Press. The work contains a moving autobiography along with a true who-done-it. And it serves as powerful testimony—testimony of one of the most sinister crimes in American history, which for too long has been erased from official accounts, like the death of Sybil Bolton. McAuliffe has helped to imbed this history where it belongs—in our conscience.”
