The shocking and compelling story about the original inhabitants of America and the first book to focus on their plight.
Describes how the American Indians lost their land and lives to a dynamically expanding white society. This book described the opening of the West from the Indians' viewpoint. It focuses on a national disgrace.

Beginning with the Long Walk of the Navajos and ending with the massacre of Sioux at Wounded Knee, this extraordinary book tells how the American Indians lost their land, lives and liberty to white settlers pushing westward. Woven into a an engrossing saga of cruelty, treachery and violence are the fascinating stories of such legendary figures as Sitting Bull, Cochise, Crazy Horse and Geronimo.
