Brown, Dee Alexander

ISBN: 0099526409
Vintage Books USA 1991. 8vo softcover 487pp., b/w illus. very good+. The American West, 1860-1890: years of broken promises, disillusionment, war and massacre. Beginning with the Long Walk of the Navajos and ending with the massacre of Sioux at Wounded Knee, this extraordinary book tells how the American Indians lost their land, lives and liberty to white settlers pushing westward. Woven into a an engrossing saga of cruelty, treachery and violence are the fascinating stories of such legendary figures as Sitting Bull, Cochise, Crazy Horse and Geronimo. First published in 1970, Dee Brown''s brutal and compelling narrative changed the way people thought about the original inhabitants of America, and focused attention on a national disgrace.nnAbout the AuthornDee Brown spent the early part of his life in the lumber camps and oil fields of the American South West. He worked as a printer, journalist and a librarian, and has published numerous books, mostly non-fiction, dealing with the history of the American West. The tragedy of the American Indians haunted him from boyhood, when he first became aware of their fate, and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee was a product of many years research in an attempt to set the record straight. Dee Brown died in 2002, aged 94.
