Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee
An Indian History of the American West
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.
Now in a special 30th anniversary edition comes the classic bestselling history "The New York Times" called "Original, remarkable, and finally heartbreaking. . . . Impossible to put down". Includes an incisive new Preface by the author. 56 illustrations.
