Publisher's Summary

Missoula by Jon Krakauer is a close examination of the cause and effect of a series of alleged sexual assaults in a Montana college town.
Missoula is the second-largest city in Montana, and the Missoula-based University of Montana (UM) Grizzlies football team is a source of significant local pride. In December 2010 a scandal began in which four members of the football team were accused of gang rape but were not charged with a crime. A year later an investigation by a former Missouri Supreme Court justice found that unreported and unprosecuted rapes were a significant issue at UM. In 2012 a Department of Justice investigation found a similar problem. The scandal evolved with media coverage although Missoula's rape statistics were not unusual for a college town. It was the mishandling of the rape cases in an apparent effort to protect the football team, the football program, and their reputation.
