Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West - Dee Brown 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 from the point of view of a different tribe, although there is some overlap. It's a part of American history that probably isn't that well known, at least, not in such great detail. Gives an excellent account of the mistreatment of an entire race of people but from their point of view.

Very highly recommended. Excellent.
