Highly recommended." --Choice, about Dee Brown's best-selling adult book, Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee"Based largely upon primary source materials such as treaty council records, pictographic and translated autobiographical accounts of Indian participants in the events and contemporary newspaper and magazine interviews, this extensively researched history is sufficiently readable to interest young adults and general readers.
