about

Russell Means is the most controversial Indian leader of our time. Where White Men Fear to Tread is the well-detailed, first-hand story of his life so far, in which he has done everything possible to dramatize and justify the Native American aim of self-determination, such as storming Mount Rushmore, seizing Plymouth Rock, running for President in 1988, and--most notoriously--leading a 71-day takeover of Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in 1973.

Where White Men Fear to Tread tells the first-hand story of Means' life so far, in which he has done everything possible to dramatize the Native American desire for self-determination--from storming Mt. Rushmore to seizing Plymouth Rock to leading a 71-day takeover of Wounded Knee. of photos

Editorial Reviews

"It's impossible to stop reading [Mean's] gripping autobiography . . . Few readers will leave the book without feeling profoundly altered by the authenticity of Mean's story. It's American history--warts, wounds, and all." -San Francisco Chronicle Book Review"Mean's tale gives one a visceral understanding of today's Indians, their ancestors, and the many betrayals they have suffered." -Chicago Tribune"Not since war chiefs such as Geronimo or Crazy Horse has an Indian leader so polarized the American public as Russell Means." -Dallas Morning News"One of the biggest, baddest, meanest, angriest, most famous American Indian activists of the late twentieth century." -The Washington Post
