Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee - Dee Brown

1970 - Holt, New York - First Edition
A rather scarce first edition, first printing of the book, in first state dust jacket.

Dee Brown’s powerful, eloquent, and meticulously documented account of the mistreatment and displacement suffered by native Americans at the hands of American expansionism during the nineteenth century. Brown used first-hand accounts of Dakota, Ute, Sioux, and Cheyenne tribe members, as well as autobiographies and council records, to narrate the battles, massacres, and broken treaties that left the native American people demoralised and decimated, dramatically changing the perspective of the history of the American West.

Illustrated with forty-nine black-and-white photographs.
