Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: The Illustrated Edition: An Indian History of the American West
Author:
Dee Brown
Foreward: Hampton Sides

For the first time: a full-color illustrated edition of Dee Brown’s classic history of the American West! Eloquent, heartbreaking, and meticulously documented, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee follows the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the 19th century.

Upon its publication in 1970, the book was universally lauded and became a cultural phenomenon that proved instrumental in transforming public perceptions of manifest destiny and the “winning” of the West.

Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown’s work highlighted the voices of those American Indians who actually experienced the battles, massacres, and broken treaties.

Now, hundreds of illustrations—including maps, photographs, sketches, and paintings—enhance Brown’s masterpiece, making it even more vivid and personal.

In addition to the incredible images, this edition also features relevant excerpts from such highly acclaimed Native American, as well as all-new essays by contemporary historians and Native American leaders like Elliott West and Joseph Marshall III.
