    ""Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" opens up a sad door to a heartbreaking period of history. You will hear first-hand that the 1800's brought agony to undeserving people who selected a lifestyle bounded by the wilderness. This was not enough to prevent the destruction of a dynasty. Take it in and reflect on this remarkable period of time. You will be changed."

    "This book should be among the best when it comes to describing and decrying social injustice. It shows how the American Indian has been destroyed and his heritage desecrated systematically over the years by America itself, the land purportedly to be of the free. From the first page to the last page, it is breathtaking and impossible to put down. I think this is a good pick. "

    "This book was very interesting. I really didn't know much about the history of the Native Americans and this really opened my eyes. I enjoyed the stories and it really made me think."

    "Now a special 30th-anniversary edition in both hardcover and paperback, the classic bestselling history The New York Times called "Original, remarkable, and finally heartbreaking...Impossible to put down" Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is Dee Brown's eloquent, fully documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the nineteenth century. A national bestseller in hardcover for more than a year after its initial publication, it has sold almost four million copies and has been translated into seventeen languages. For this elegant thirtieth-anniversary edition -- published in both hardcover and paperback -- Brown has contributed an incisive new preface. Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown allows the great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes to tell us in their own words of the battles, massacres, and broken treaties that finally left them demoralized and defeated. A unique and disturbing narrative told with force and clarity, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee changed forever our vision of how the West was really won."

    "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West is an amazing story. This tale is well known to American students as it is studied in History classes. The story goes much deeper and touches much more than students learn. This is truly history that is heartbreaking and important lessons to learn."

    "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is one of the most important books on American history because it tells a comprehensive history of Native Americans. While its minute accuracy has been questioned, the larger picture it tells is hardly up for debate."

    "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is one of those books that needs a few reads to fully appreciate. Everytime I have read it, I got something new and different from the book. "

    "I had to read this in school, and as far as history books are concerned it was better than most. If I didn't have to read it though, I would definitely not have picked it up. I like history as much as the next person, but an in-depth look at one particular event like this is not what I enjoy reading. "

    "My uncle loved novels set in the Old West so I bought this book for him on his birthday. He absolutely loved it and recommended I read it. It's about the relationship between the west and Indians in Dakota and their different tribes. "

    "I am not familiar with the ALA Think Tank. This book is good for Indian History and would be a good read for someone wanting to find out about that more. I personally would not read this book."

    "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is an important story about the history of America and its native peoples. The story documents the devastation Native Americans faced during building of the country. This book is important history and should be included in the curriculum of all grade schools. "

    "A great book if you like crying yourself to sleep at night. This is a book everyone should read and also a school required reading text instead of what's traditionally taught."

    "This book was required reading for me in highschool. Honestly, I thought that it was very well written but a little too gory for my taste. Although I know that it an historical account so it's important. It just wasn't really for me. "

    "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is a truthful look into American history from the Native American point of view. This gives a clearer view of how the Native Americans were treated by white settlers and essentially wiped out by Western expansion. "
