The American West, 1860-1890: years of broken promises, disillusionment,
war and massacre. Beginning with the Long Walk of the Navajos and
ending with the massacre of Sioux at Wounded Knee, this extraordinary
book tells how the American Indians lost their land, lives and liberty
to white settlers pushing westward. Woven into a an engrossing saga of
cruelty, treachery and violence are the fascinating stories of such
legendary figures as Sitting Bull, Cochise, Crazy Horse and Geronimo.
First published in 1970, Dee Brown's brutal and compelling narrative changed the way people thought about the original inhabitants of America, and focused attention on a national disgrace.
