This true story by David Grann about the Osage tribe in Oklahoma during the 1920's, reads as if it were a fictional mystery. You'll be reeling from the murders painstakingly planned and performed by "a serial killer" in order to receive (um, steal) a piece of the oil-money pie owned by tribal members with rights to the oil discovered on their reservation.

I read this cover to cover the first time I opened it. Educational, mouthwatering intros for most recipes, and other than several new-to-me spices and staples, the ingredients are generally few, and likely to to be in your pantry or fridge already. A really cool technique recipe on how to make couscous from scratch!
