Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee


Product Description
Product Details


Brown's 1970 classic captures the Native American experience during the latter half of the 19th century. He describes how the U.S. government systematically eradicated Native groups to seize their homelands for distribution to white settlers. The escalating barbarity of the warfare culminated in the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee, SD, one of the worst atrocities ever committed by the U.S. military. Brown's monograph, alongside works such as Vine Deloria Jr.'s Custer Died for Your Sins, ushered in an era in Native American studies where the perspectives of Native peoples were brought to the fore. The original text is supplemented with full-color maps, illustrations, and photographs. Interspersed throughout are excerpts from the writings of Alvin M. Josephy Jr. and Russell Means that bring Brown's work into the present day. Verdict This new edition is highly recommended for all readers interested in U.S. history.-John Burch, Campbellsville Univ.
