Abstract
 
Description
"Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" is Dee Brown's eloquent and meticulously 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 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. The book covers from the 1860s, when the U.S. government removed the Navajo from their lands, to the final act in this horrendous period in American history, the bloody 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee and its aftermath.
