Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is Dee Brown's eloquent, fully documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the 19th century. When it was first published in 1971, both reviewers and the reading public responded first with shock, then a deep sense of shame, calling it "shattering" (Washington Post), and "heartbreaking" (The New York Times). It went on to sell over a million copies in hardcover and four million copies in paperback, and was translated into 15 languages around the world.

Execellent Overview of the Indian Wars
An excellent overview of the Midwest Natives' battle against the government for a place in their own country. Very well researched and documented, Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee is an excellent introduction to this turbulent period for the Native American. Deeply engrossing and incredibly compelling, you will find yourself outraged at the many broken promises and injustices that the American government committed against the American Indians. This book is a classic, lauded by scholars for its historical accuracy, and required reading for anyone interested in this period of American history.
