REVIEWS

Praise for Wounded Knee

"Battle by battle, massacre by massacre, broken treaty by broken treaty, this is a documented, gripping chronicle of the Indian struggle from 1860 to 1890 against the white man's systematic plunder."--Booklist, about Dee Brown's best-selling adult book, Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee

"Fusing scholarship with a capacity for writing a story of epic proportions, Brown has cut through a mass of white expansionist rhetoric to give the reader an Indian perspective of the conquest of the trans-Mississippi West for the last four decades of the nineteenth century. Highly recommended."--Choice, about Dee Brown's best-selling adult book, Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee

"Based largely upon primary source materials such as treaty council records, pictographic and translated autobiographical accounts of Indian participants in the events and contemporary newspaper and magazine interviews, this extensively researched history is sufficiently readable to interest young adults and general readers. Recommended for wide purchase."--Library Journal, about Dee Brown's best-selling adult book, Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee
