Book Title: Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee

Author: Dee Brown

Book Description:

My research looks at news coverage of American Indians in the news media. The question that I face most by working journalists in the field as I am critiquing how they cover American Indians is "where are you coming from on this?" Dee Brown's book should be required reading by everyone in what ever discipline they may choose to study. Brown clearly archives some of the most moving events in American and American Indian history... such as Sand Creek, Greasy Grass, and Paha Sapa. Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee is an old book-but read this book and find out- "where we are coming from."
