In Voices of Wounded Knee, William S. E. Coleman brings together for the first time all the available sources-Lakota, military, and civilian-on the massacre of 29 December 1890. He recreates the Ghost Dance in detail and shows how it related to the events leading up to the massacre. Using accounts of participants and observers, Coleman reconstructs the massacre moment by moment. He places contradictory accounts in direct juxtaposition, allowing the reader to decide who was telling the truth.

About the Author:

William S. E. Coleman is a professor emeritus of theatre at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. He and his wife spent nearly thirty years gathering documents from collections in the United States and abroad to create this book.

From Library Journal:

While much has been written about Wounded Knee and what happened there, this is the first account in which the participants have been allowed to tell the story almost entirely in their own words. While Coleman (theater, Drake Univ.) was seeking information on Buffalo Bill Cody, a chance meeting with Benjamin Black Elk set him on the trail of firsthand accounts of the events that led up to the Wounded Knee Massacre of December 29, 1890. He has welded these accounts (of the two-week Ghost Dance and the climactic attack by the Seventh Cavalry) into a riveting narrative that tells how the massacre emerged out of a long string of broken treaties, cultural mistrust, governmental rivalries, and inflammatory press reports. Rather than presenting a series of documents, he selects only the relevant parts of each, setting differing accounts of the same event in juxtaposition to each other, with a minimal connecting narrative to keep the chronological selections in context. Highly recommended for academic and public libraries.DStephen H. Peters, Northern Michigan Univ. Lib., Marquette
