 Immediately recognized as a revelatory and enormously controversial book since its first publication in 1971, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is universally recognized as one of those rare books that forever changes the way its subject is perceived. Now repackaged with a new introduction from bestselling author Hampton Sides to coincide with a major HBO dramatic film of the book, Bury    My Heart at Wounded Knee.             Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is Dee Brown's classic, eloquent, meticulously documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the nineteenth century. A national bestseller in hardcover for more than a year after its initial publication, it has sold over four million copies in multiple editions and has been translated into seventeen languages.            Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown allows great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes to tell us in their own words of the series of battles, massacres, and broken treaties that finally left them and their people demoralized and decimated. 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 won, and lost. It tells a story that should not be forgotten, and so must be retold from time to time.

5.0 Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West
Very good story of the near extinction of Native American Indians in the late 1800s. Extremely sad, and makes you wonder what hope there is for the human race in general when you read this type of story. Really made me think about the plight of others. Each chapter tells part of the story, usually f...

Audiobook was available at Downpour for only USD5.95. Excellent narration by Grover Gardner.DEVASTATING. Very difficult reading. Dense. I am very glad it was written and that I have read it. The language used is perfect. I don't know how to properly convey to what extent this book upset me. Everyone...

A sweeping work of history, which I would have enjoyed even more if I were better with names. Brown recounts the interactions between native Americans and European immigrants almost as a series of episodes, and if you don't keep the names straight, it can sound a lot like the same things happening o...

It's been fifteen years since I first read this. I think it's time to make myself cry with it again.
