My Life is My Sundance
Leonard Peltier 2000 272p 5 x 9
In 1977, Leonard Peltier received a life sentence for the murder of two FBI agents. Prison Writings is a wise and unsettling book, both memoir and manifesto, chronicling his life in Leavenworth Prison in Kansas. Invoking the Sun Dance, in which pain leads one to a transcendent reality, Peltier explores his suffering and the insights it has borne him. He also locates his experience within the history of the American Indian peoples and their struggles to overcome the federal government’s injustices.
