A true classic of American history, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is Dee Brownâs eloquent, meticulously documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the nineteenth century.

A unique and disturbing narrative told with force and clarity, this book changed forever our vision of how the West was really won.
