OUTSTANDING - A READ FOR EVERYONE!!!!
I never learned about Wounded Knee in high school and now that I teach high school social studies - it is something I always talk about with my classes. Professor Richardson's book is very detailed, reads like a great lecture about cultural and political issues, and I believe, has something to say to us today about how the 'ideas' of progress can sometimes destroy cultures. Up until a few years ago, the subject of Wounded Knee barely got coverage in high school history books (maybe a sentence) - now, it is at least getting a paragraph or more.
Furthermore, this is a good study of Gilded Age politics and how parties manipulated voters to get what they wanted - AND it is a great overview of the history of the WEST during this time. I highly recommend it for the average reader and the historian alike.
