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

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Dee Brown

Narrated By: Grover Gardner

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: October 2009

Duration: 14 hours 24 minutes

Summary:

Dee Brown's eloquent, meticulously documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the nineteenth century uses 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 battles, massacres, and broken treaties that finally left them demoralized and defeated. A unique and disturbing narrative told with force and clarity, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee forever changed our vision of how the West was really won—and lost.

"Original, remarkable, and finally heartbreaking….Impossible to put down."—New York Times
