Riassunto: This vibrantly written memoire is beautifully descriptive but never boring. You may laugh, you may cry but the journey of his life is compelling. This author gives texture to the lives of those he writes about. His characters are well developed in a subtle way and there is a charming innocence to the world in which they lived. It is a fundamental story of a family's devotion to each other and to their basic survival; it is heart breaking to read of the sacrifices made just to avoid giving up. It is a passionately written example of the American spirit. This book includes stories of corruption, extending even to multiple murders eventually investigated by the newly formed FBI. Although the law forbade the sale of mineral rights owned by Osage peoples a surviving white husband could, however, inherit his wife's mineral rights. It also explores some of the devout religious beliefs of the time and how it could mean the difference between life and death. It is a story of the land and how the power of the people lay in the hands of those who had the oil. These circumstances enabled the author to come to grips with, racism, prejudice, the life of the "have and the have-nots". His childhood gave him a glimpse of the reality of adult life, which he would later confront. The descriptions he shares of a country boy's experience of Tulsa and dressing up when "going to town" will give you a glance into a bygone world. The anecdotes he shares are sometimes sad but often hilarious. We each can relate to the struggle to come of age when we are not quite ready for the experience. It will draw you in to a wonderful story of a boy's hard life of survival in the Osage country of Oklahoma. The small pleasures he describes will give pause and make you reflect on your own life and what is really important. The constant pulsing of oilfield equipment pervading the life he lived is in stark contrast to the rugged beauty of Osage lands. The culture of hunting with both runnin
