Early in this century, rivers of oil were found beneath Oklahoma land belonging to Native American people, and beautiful Grace Banket became the richest person in the Territory. But her own fate, followed by the fates of the caretakers of her daughter, are met with dark demise. Letters sent to Washington, D.C. begging for help go unanswered, until at last a Native American government official, travels west to investigate. What he finds is documented by history: rampant fraud, intimidation, and murder. But he also finds something truly extraordinary—his deepest self and an abiding love for his people, and their brave past.
