    Dee Brown's eloquent, meticulously documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the 19th 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.

    Reginald says: "A wrenching introduction to this history."
    "Many nights sleep lost due to great book"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee the most enjoyable?

    40 years after being written, it is still very relavant, and helpful to gain a historical perspective that is not commonly discussed in the mainstream. The book was well written, well read, and very specific, rather than having a pan-American Indian style of generalizing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This book is full of many real life heroes, why pick only one.


    Which character – as performed by Grover Gardner – was your favorite?

    NA


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many.


    Any additional comments?

    I have had this book on my wish list of reads for years, and even bought a couple copies but never got around to it (as I don't have much time to sit down and read), but thanks to it being available on audiobook, I have finally listened to it, and was not dissapointed at all. I lost many nights sleep due to not being able to "put it down" (what is the listening version to that term?). I have no doubt that I will re-read/listen to this book a few more times in my life.
