Oil was discovered in Oklahoma in the 1920's making many Native Americans very rich. The often unknown backstory is that the newfound wealth spurred a vicious campaign on the part of white businessmen, policemen, and their henchmen to violate the rights of these Native Americans taking their property, and sometimes their lives. This era of American history has been made into a work of historical fiction by Linda Hogan, who explores the often untold side of the story.
