Absolutely magnificient in the historical telling of the rise of the KKK in the 1920's and the Grand Draon, David Stephenson and the woman who was finally brave enough to "out" him for the o=monster he was. He kidnapped Madge Oberholtzer, raped her, left horrific bite marks, and threatened her to the point that she took poison. On her death bed, she wrote and notarized her torture and he was finally convicted. He was scum, egotistical to a degree that he declared "I am the law", a money launder, a liar, a thief - sounds just like Trump. A frightening story with its parallels to the climate in our country today. Madge caused the "fever in the heartland" to break and the Klan membership went down but the Klan was already rotten to the core and unravelling. He was a flim-flam man to the 9th degree and it is fascinating to watch how he puts people under his spell until he controls the political and justice system.… (més)

An excellent telling of the life of Edward Curtis, who made the multi-volume collection of The American Indian his life's work. So deep was his passion for the project that he ultimately completed the work without compensation or rights to the completed volumes. Recommended for those interested in photography, anthropology, and the history of the American West.

Egan challenges the common idea that the KKK was predominately a Southern nuisance by revealing how prevalent and influential the KKK was in the North. The top Klan leader in Indiana was a sexual predator. When his actions lead to the death of one of his victims, her death bed testimony lead to his conviction and was a tipping point in the downfall of the pre-WWII KKK. The were many parallels between what was happening with the KKK in the 1920's and what is going on in the United States today. I appreciated that the author did not feel the need to hit readers over the head with comparisons, letting the history speak for itself.… (més)

This is a well crafted and thoroughly researched account of a historic chain of events I’m surprised I’ve never heard of before. I’m grateful that Egan chose to share Madge’s story and to uncover the klan history that’s usually glossed over.
