The author Russell Ferrell has crafted a compelling, complex, and epic tale of intrigue, struggle,and determination against all odds. It is a tale of the triumph of the dedicated in the face of great obstacles and the toll the struggle often demands. It involves hard-headed and short sighted academics, controlling corporate entities, quagmire like governmental structures and procedures, and the stubborn strength of individuals pitted against an avalanche of forces determined to sweep them out of the picture. Mythic. Epic. Fictional? No, this is a tale of gripping reality proving the old adage that truth is often more real, and definitely stranger, than any fictional mind could create. A small episode in contemporary American history that proves to have resonance and strong lessons for the wider society. An intriguing, thought provoking, real-life adventure that will have you rooting for the 'two ordinary men'fighting for their rights against the bullies. The Bone War of McCurtain County will appeal to readers of dinosaur discoveries, corporate greed, and the common man struggling against insurmountable odds.
