Yellow Bird

Oil, Murder, and a Woman's Search for Justice in Indian Country

Sierra Crane Murdoch

Yellow Bird is a haunting work of literary journalism that tells the true story of Lissa Yellow Bird, an Arikara woman who becomes obsessed with solving a murder on her Indian reservation. The book explores the aftermath of the Bakken oil boom on Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, as well as issues of violence, addiction, and corporate interests. It is an urgent and exquisitely written portrait of a complex woman's search for justice and redemption, and a profound examination of the legacy of systematic violence inflicted on a tribal nation.
