Synopsis:
Kept off the shelves for eight years by legal battles, this is the comprehensive history of the desperate Indian efforts to maintain their traditions and preserve the sacredness of the earth. Matthiessen reveals the Lakota Indians' long struggle with the U.S. Government, from Red Cloud's War and Little Big Horn to the Indian wars of the 1970s. 3 maps.

Review:
"[O]ne of the most dramatic demonstrations of endemic American racism that has yet been written--a powerful, unsettling book that will force even the most ethno-pious reader to inspect the limits of his understanding."

Page Stegner, New York Review of Books, 04/14/1983

Review:
"[O]ne of those rare books that permanently change[s] one's consciousness about important, yet neglected, facets of our history."

Alan M. Dershowitz, New York Times Book Review, 03/06/1983

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United States, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 214 x 139 mm. Brand New Book. On a hot June morning in 1975, a desperate shoot-out between FBI agents and Native Americans near Wounded Knee, South Dakota, left an Indian and two federal agents dead. Four members of AIM, the American Indian Movement, were indicted on murder charges, and one, Leonard Peltier, was convicted and is now serving consecutive life sentences in a federal penitentiary.Behind this violent chain of events lie issues of great complexity and profound historical resonance, brilliantly explicated by Peter Matthiessen in this controversial book. In a comprehensive history of the desperate Indian efforts to maintain their traditions, Matthiessen reveals the Lakota tribe s long struggle with the U.S. government, from Red Cloud s War and Little Big Horn in the nineteenth century to the shameful discrimination that led to the new Indian wars of the 1970s.
