Virtual Event with Sierra Crane Murdoch, Yellow Bird: Oil, Murder, and a Woman’s Search for Justice in Indian Country –
Yellow Bird is an exquisitely written, masterfully reported story about a search for justice, as well as an intimate profile of a complex woman. Lissa is smart, funny, eloquent, thoughtful, and—when it serves her cause—manipulative. Drawing on eight years of immersive investigation, Crane Murdoch has produced a deep examination of the legacy of systematic violence inflicted on a tribal nation and its individual members, a tale of extraordinary healing, and an exceptional character study of a self-made detective whose passion and larger-than-life personality we will not soon forget.
Sierra Crane Murdoch is a journalist based in the American West and has written for The Atlantic, The New Yorker online, Virginia Quarterly Review, Orion, and High Country News. She is a MacDowell Fellow.
