Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Dee Brown

Narrated By: Grover Gardner

Date: October 2009

Duration: 14 hours 24 minutes

Summary:

Immediately recognized as a revelatory and enormously controversial book since its first publication in 1971, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is universally recognized as one of those rare books that forever changes the way its subject is perceived.

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is Dee Brown’s classic, eloquent, meticulously documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the nineteenth century. Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown allows great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes to tell us in their own words of the series of battles, massacres, and broken treaties that finally left them and their people demoralized and decimated. A unique and disturbing narrative told with force and clarity, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee changed forever our vision of how the West was won—and lost. It tells a story that should not be forgotten, and so must be retold from time to time.

    This book is a masterpiece. The author takes us on a journey to the 2nd part of 19th century America and details memorable events in a chronological way. It is expertly written, you feel being a part of the book as soon as you read it. The cherry on the cake was the narration, best narration I've ever listened to! Grover reads the dialogues with intonation and reads it perfectly. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn more about America's first inhabitants and how the inexorable quest for new lands from the white man pushed the native Americans to the brink of extinction.

    Fascinating but very very sad. White Americans should feel bad about this being part of their history
