Editorial Reviews

Review

“Original, remarkable, and finally heartbreaking . . . Impossible to put down.” —The New York Times
 
“Shattering, appalling, compelling . . . One wonders, reading this searing, heartbreaking book, who, indeed, were the savages.” —William McPherson, The Washington Post
 
“A fascinating, painful document . . . illustrated with magnificent Indian portraits.” —The Wall Street Journal
 
“A first-rate account . . . strongly and ardently written.” —The New Yorker
 
“A narrative of singular intensity.” —N. Scott Momaday, Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist

About the Author

Dorris Alexander “Dee” Brown (1908–2002) was a celebrated author of both fiction and nonfiction, whose classic study Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is widely credited with exposing the systematic destruction of American Indian tribes to a world audience. Brown was born in Louisiana and grew up in Arkansas. He worked as a reporter and a printer before enrolling at Arkansas State Teachers College, where he met his future wife, Sally Stroud. He later earned two degrees in library science, and worked as a librarian while beginning his career as a writer. He went on to research and write more than thirty books, often centered on frontier history or overlooked moments of the Civil War. Brown continued writing until his death in 2002.
