Description: For the first time: a full-color illustrated edition of Dee Brown's classic history of the American West! Eloquent, heartbreaking, and meticulously documented,Bury My Heart at Wounded Kneefollows the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the 19th century. Upon its publication in 1970, the book was universally lauded and became a cultural phenomenon that proved instrumental in transforming public perceptions of manifest destiny and the "winning" of the West. Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown's work highlighted the voices of those American Indians who actually experienced the battles, massacres, and broken treaties. Here is their view of the events that ultimately left them demoralized and defeated, including: the Battle of Sand Creek; Red Cloud's War; the Battle of the Little Bighorn; and, of course, the Wounded Knee Massacre. Crazy Horse, Red Cloud, Sitting Bull, and Spotted Tailthe great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Cheyenne, and other tribescome to life through their own words and formal portraits. Now, hundreds of illustrationsincluding maps, photographs, sketches, and paintingsenhance Brown's masterpiece, making it even more vivid and personal. In addition to the incredible images, this edition also features relevant excerpts from such highly acclaimed Native-American themed books asWhere White Men Fear to Treadby Russell Means,Mystic Chords of Memoryby Michael Kammen, andLakota Womanby Mary Crow Dog, as well as all-new essays by contemporary historians and Native American leaders like Elliott West and Joseph Marshall III.
