Reader recommendation: The Blue Tattoo

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

The Blue Tattoo: The Life of Olive Oatman by Margot Miffin is a riveting true story of a teenager captured by Indians in the early 1850s. The West truly was more wild than John Wayne movie's portrayed it. This is an easy, flowing read, one you won't be able to put down.
