Overview

BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE is an eloquent, fully-documented account of the systematic destruction of American Indians during the second half of the 19th century.

Using council records, autobiographies and other firsthand descriptions, Dee Brown allows the great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Sioux and Cheyenne to tell us about the battles, massacres and broken treaties that finally left them demoralized and defeated. Sadly, this is how the west was really won.

"Fascinating and painful." (The Wall Street Journal)

"Strongly and ardently written." (The New Yorker)
