Book Review: Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown
Really enlightening and easy to read, covers primarily 1860-90, something from each of the regions in the U.S., some of the major figures involved (all sides), and ultimately how Native Americans were pushed onto reservations. Some things I definitely did not know, and it is much more informative than most versions of U.S. history taught to us in school. It was great to get an idea of the Native American perspective on many of these country changing events. This was recommend to me by a woman I am in a non-fiction book club with, and I in turn now highly recommend this one as well.
And so it goes...
