On a hot June morning in 1975, a fatal shoot-out took place between FBI agents and American Indians on a remote property near Wounded Knee, South Dakota. Four members of the American Indian Movement were indicted on murder charges for the deaths of two federal agents killed that day. Leonard Peltier, the only one to be convicted, is now serving consecutive life sentences in a federal penitentiary.

Behind this violent chain of events lie issues of great complexity and profound historical resonance.

PETER MATTHIESSEN has written eight novels, a book of short stories, and, from his career as a naturalist and environmental activist, numerous acclaimed works of nonfiction.

“A giant of a book…Indescribably touching, extraordinarily intelligent.”—Los Angeles Times Review “Meticulously researched…A courageous document.”—Boston Globe “A book of enormous importance…You have to believe that Crazy Horse would have loved its renegade spirit and unflinching reach for the truth.”—Milwaukee Journal “By the time I had turned the final page, I felt angry enough…to want to shout from the rooftops, ‘Wake up, America, before it is too damned late!’ For Matthiessen, in this extraordinary, complex work, powerfully propounds several large and disturbing themes which the white majority in America will ignore at extreme peril.”—Washington Review “An important and angry book that belongs on the shelf containing A Century of Dishonor, Custer Died for Your Sins, and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.”—Wallace Stegner, New Republic “Narrator Mark Bramhall can pronounce the extensive vocabulary of American Indian languages, and his voice brings to mind what modern Caucasians might imagine to be the speech patterns of eighteenth-century Native Americans trying to speak English.”—AudioFile
