Journals Dennis McAuliffe 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. 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 up the oil-rich Osage reservation to court, marry, and murder Native women to gain control of their money."--Page 4 of cover.
