6 comments on “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: Book Review and a Proposal for Reparations

  1. While in my teens I read Hyemeyohts Storm’s Seven Arrows. It was the first occasion of me taking a step back and rethinking what I’d been taught. I haven’t read ‘Wounded Knee’ but your thoughtful post has prompted me to rectify that.

  2. I remember reading this book probably in my early 20’s. It was torturous to read for someone with any empathy. It’s time I pass this onto my son.

  3. Dee Brown was a librarian at the University of Illinois when I was a student there in the 70’s. It is an honor to be in any way associated with the person who wrote such an important book. I agree with both your points

    • Mr. Brown must’ve indeed been a remarkable man. That he could so fully see this history through the perspective of others and then distill that in such a complete, well-documented, well-written work is a tremendous achievement. Thanks for reading and commenting, Mary.
