I find it appalling that Peter Matthiessen would invoke the name of Crazy Horse in this scenario. Mr. Matthiessen obviously had a very easy time writing this book because it is pretty much word for word what the Peltier Defense Committee has been screaming since 1975. This is absolute propaganda and an insult to the intelligence of the readers. I get it that Mr. Matthiessen is on Peltier's side but at least TRY to be objective about it and at least try to write a book that just puts the info on the table and allows the readers to make their own decision about the contents. Rather than doing this, he omits anything that might possibly place Peltier in a negative light. Which given Peltier's history is a major undertaking. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

This book recounts an almost unbelievable tale of corruption and serves as a good reminder of just how ineffective and horrifying the justice system becomes in the hands of people with political ... Read full review

An engrossing but frustrating book. Make no mistake, this is not an unbiased account of the events on the plains Indian reservations in the 1970s. The account is heavily slanted towards making the ... Read full review

I downloaded this book from Audible the week before Peter Mattiessen died, and listening to it when the obits came out. Then the NYTimes magazine ran an article about an investigation into the death ... Read full review

There are so many good reviews of this book already, I hesitate to write another one. What can I bring to the table? Oh well, here goes. In 1974, I happened to be in the right place, at the right time ... Read full review

User Review  - Charles Johnson - Goodreads

This is an excellent book on the plight of the Native Americans. The book is not necessarily written from a Christian perspective, however, it is excellent, especially the details on the Lakota. Read full review

User Review  - Chris Thorsrud - Goodreads

Matthiessen does a thorough job interweaving both Wounded Knee events, about 80 years apart. This should be included on high school and college reading lists, as well as read by anyone interested in history that goes deeper than the basics, many times erroneous, presented as fact. Read full review

Just so much here. A remarkably detailed account of the men and women who stood up for traditional American Indian rights and the great efforts of the Federal and Local governments to tear them down ... Read full review
