Suggested One Read: Yellow Bird

Yellow Bird book coverIn January, our One Read reading panel will begin narrowing down the list of books nominated for our community-wide reading program. In the meantime, we are highlighting just some of these suggested titles so you can see what other local readers are enjoying.

Yellow Bird: Oil, Murder, and a Woman’s Search for Justice in Indian Country” was nominated by a local reader, who writes: “Murdoch spent eight years researching this multi-faceted story which explores murder, greed, the repeated misjustices experienced by Natives of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation and introduces us to Lissa Yellow Bird, the courageous, tenacious investigator who refuses to stop looking for answers in her quest for justice. The complexities of this work would afford many opportunities for discussion and learning.”

Author Sierra Crane Murdoch’s eight-year investigation has created a book that shares with us how Lissa, a meth addict fresh out of prison, channeled the same addictive impulses that landed her in prison into the search for Kristopher “KC” Clarke, who went missing in the early 2010s.
