Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee
An Indian History of the American West
Dee Brown 1970 481p 6 x 9
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is Dee Brown’s classic, eloquent, meticulously documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian and their tenancious survival during the second half of the nineteenth century. Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown allows warriors of the Dakota, Dine, Arapaho, Ute, Sioux, Cheyenne, Apache, Modoc, Kiowa, Comanche, Nez Pierce, Ponca and other tribes to tell in their own words of the series of battles, massacres, victories and broken treaties that finally left them and their people demoralized and decimated.
