What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
While on its face this book is about Chief Leschi's history, re-trial, and role in the Pacific Northwest, Blee makes its purpose and argument more about the complexity, and even impossibility, of disentangling history and memory in the effort to engage the U.S. history and present of colonialism, and thus also the effort to move towards justice for indigenous peoples.—Kevin Bruyneel, Babson College
