"Original, remarkable, and finally heartbreaking....Impossible to put down." (New York Times)
"Shattering, appalling, compelling....One wonders...who indeed were the savages." (Washington Post)
I found this book difficult to get through. It is profound, powerful, and infinitely sad. I am far more sensitive now to issues dealing with native americans. This was an education I needed, and think everyone should read. I read it because it is part of the Congressional Library's "88 Books that Shaped America" display this year.
The perspectives and stories of each individual Chief or tribe.
I learned that I didn't have much knowledge of Native Americans and their fight to preserve their way of life and how they were oppressed and exterminated by Americans by stealing their land thru broken treaties, natural resources, and eventually, stealing their lives. So sad. We owe them.
