It s an interesting overview and it s very evocative of the time in which this happened There s are all kinds of wow I never knew that moments for readers interested in Tulsa history the race riot was just not mentioned in Tulsa for so long at the end of the book it even talks about threats made to a reporter who was planning to write about it as late as the 1970s that it s entirely possible to have grown up in Tulsa and have never known that this happenedThat said however I dislike the way it s just out and out fictionalized with florid descriptions and exact surmised dialogue It s written like a novel than non fiction I realize that this is a common techniue in this kind of popular history and that might be exactly what s needed to get people to read about such a horrific event It seems like a good stepping off point for reading on the topic I was just looking for a scholarly book I guess
