Bury my heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian history of the American West - Dee Brown

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 nineteenth century.

Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown allows the great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes to tell us in their own words of the battles, massacres, and broken treaties that finally left them demoralized and defeated. A unique and disturbing narrative told with force and clarity, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee changed forever our vision of how the West was really won.

This book is amazing and tragic in equal measure. A must-read but it is so so sad.

Agree with Steven. Read it when it was just translated in Dutch in 1973, still re-reading it now and then. Good to have it here.
