Publisher's Summary

Russell Means was the most controversial Native American leader of the 20th century.

Where White Men Fear to Tread is the well-detailed, firsthand story of Russell Means' life - a life in which he did everything possible to dramatize and justify the Native American aim of self-determination. He stormed Mount Rushmore, seized Plymouth Rock, ran for president in 1988, and, most notoriously, led a 71-day takeover of Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in 1973. This visionary autobiography by one of America's most magnetic personalities will fascinate, educate, and inspire. It has been said that knowledge of Means' story is essential for any clear understanding of American Indians during the last half of the 20th century.

A true blessing to hear His voice

Mr. Russell Means was a true American patriot. The most famous American Indian since Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull. Means was a 21st century warrior for his people and fought relentlessly for the rights of all Indigenous peoples around the world. His life is a testament of inspiration and sacrifice. This should be a required read in all Native American schools. Russell Means is greatly missed. This audio reading by him is a real blessing. Rest in Power.

A true Native Warrior that speaks the truth and wears his heart on his sleeve.

This is an excellent book that should be a must for all the absorb factual truths in US History. A transparent journey with a brave Warrior who empowered his people and fought against the continued injustices against Native Americans.
