9780312147617: Where White Men Fear to Tread: The Autobiography of Russell Means

Russell Means is the most controversial Indian leader of our time. Where White Men Fear to Tread is the well-detailed, first-hand story of his life so far, in which he has done everything possible to dramatize and justify the Native American aim of self-determination, such as storming Mount Rushmore, seizing Plymouth Rock, running for President in 1988, and--most notoriously--leading a 71-day takeover of Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in 1973. This visionary autobiography by one of our most magnetic personalities will fascinate, educate, and inspire. As Dee Brown has written, "A reading of Means's story is essential for any clear understanding of American Indians during the last half of the twentieth century."

About the Author:

Russell Means, born an Oglala/Lakota in 1939, was raised on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation near the Black Hills, and then in Vallejo, California. Now a grandfather with twenty-two grandchildren, Means divides his time between Chinle, Navajo Nation, Arizona, and Porcupine, North Dakota.

Marvin J. Wolf is an award-winning writer and member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors. He lives in Los Angeles.

From AudioFile:

After researching the persecution of American Indians by the US government, Russell Means, also a Native American, decided to fight back through organized protest. Means reveals his transformation from troubled teenager to motivated community activist. Although Means is not an accomplished speaker, no one could better convey the disheartening ordeals of his people more appropriately. Bitterness surfaces in his voice as he reveals the countless inequities Native Americans have suffered. He emotionally exposes how years of prejudice toward him resulted in a frustrating battle against alcoholism and debilitating suppression of anger. Means's inspirational portrayal of the American Indians' spiritual beliefs, convictions and myths is mesmerizing. B.J.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
