Now a special th anniversary edition in Heart at Epub #220 both hardcover and paperback the classic bestselling history The New York Times called Original remarkable and finally heartbreakingImpossible to put down Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is Dee Brown's elouent fully documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the nineteenth cen The land of the free is no longer the home of the braveIt took me a long while to read thisIt wasn't that it was a boring read far from it But it was a disturbing read and the fact that each chapter follows virtually the same pattern made it that much harder to read You knew from the start how each chapter would end though you desperately hoped it wouldn'tDee Brown's book should be reuired reading for every US citizen and on the book list for anyone considering US citizenship It tells the true story of what the US was built on Far from what is often claimed the country was not built on the Christian principles of freedom but rather on what every other country including my own was built on oppression and greed It isn't this that troubles me I'm not that naive What troubles me is how this flies in the face of the many claims I hear that the founding of the US differs from other nations It belies claims that the US is uniuely placed in the modern world to be the arbiter of global justiceThe catalogue of crimes against humanity detailed by Brown is chilling but I was shocked most by where the guilt for these crimes lies I had originally thought that the native Americans were oppressed and wiped out by settlers miners ranchers and mercenaries the everyday man in the wild west street Although these people may well have pulled the trigger on occasions that most I was stunned by how often the proud and truly great people of that continent were betrayed by the US government and military Promise after promise was broken Lies were deliberately told for national gain at their expense from presidents down It is a shameful story of the greed which fashioned the US into the nation it is todayThe worst thing about it all is that over 35 years since Brown's book was published that the average US citizen knows little of how their country was really founded The west was not won at all it was stolen outright It is a humbling indictment of what some claim is the greatest nation the world has ever seen If this is the greatest nation the world can come up with we have truly seen that humanity is rotten to the core The land of the free is no longer the home of the braveRead of my reviews at arukiyomicom

Dee Brown ¶ Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee An Indian History of the American West BOOK

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee An Indian History of the American WestS 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 My Heart at Kindle #208 massacres and broken treaties that finally left them demoralized and defeated A uniue and disturbing narrative told with force and clarity Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee changed forever our vision of how the West was really wo This book is devastating relentless and depressing It should be reuired reading for all US citizens High school history classes really should teach kids just exactly how our country expanded west As an American of European descent I am thoroughly disgusted Invasion and destroying other people's cultures is bad enough but we did even worse than take the Indians' land and systematically destroy so many of their cultures Read onAnd yes it iscultures plural Most white people never bothered to understand how many different tribes and languages there wereTo be fair the book does mention a few white people who tried to do the right thing including President Ulysses Grant who hired the first Indian to workas Commissioner of Indian Affairs It's similar to the way some white people were active in the Underground Railroad and in the Civil Rights movementToo little too late but at least there were instances of compassion and respectIn the 21st century we have certainly come a long way in terms of cultural sensitivity But still in my opinion the worst of it is that we acuired the land from its original inhabitants by lying and cheating and killing women children old people and even their horses Horses meant freedom and mobility and we just couldn't allow the tribes to have that so the soldiers would shoot all the ponies We made treaties and then broke them as soon as it became inconvenient There is nothing honorable about that I'm proud to be American but this aspect of our history is truly shameful Isn't it wonderful that as Americans we have the right to speak out when something is wrong People need to read this book educate themselves and not let this kind of atrocity happen again
