Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History
I originally read this book back in my freshman year of college for an American history class.  I wasn't expecting or prepared for what I read.  I was, perhaps naively, expecting something …

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History
What an awesome alternate history compilation. Anyone who wants to see the other side of the Old West, the other side of cowboys and indians, this is a must read. It's a bit slanted against the white-man, …

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History

1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before
I was excited about this book for a while, yet, particularly after disappointment with 1421's overblown claims, I was skeptical that its initial claims would be supported by hard evidence. Instead, I …

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History
