[b]An Indian History of the American West[/b]

by Dee Brown


[b]"It is no exaggeration to call this one of the most important
contributions to the frontier ever published. Reading this
indictment....will leave the fairminded reader with a sense of shame-plus
a shock of recognition"
John Barkham, Saturday Review Syndicate

"A fascinating, painful document...A vivid narrative, lifted to high
emotions and moral power by Brown's use of the words of the great Indian
chiefs and warriors. The poetic diction and extraordinary eloquence of
these Indian voices sear the heart."
Edmund Fuller, The Wall Street Journal

PRAIRIE FIRE

"The last words of this revisionary history of the American West come from
an anonymous Indian. "They made us many promises, more than I can
remember, but they never kept but one; they promised to take our land, and
they took it." They are white Americans, like the author of this damning
case against our national roots in greed, perfidy, ignorance and malice.
The motive force for our theft of land and identity from the Indians was
Manifest Destiny, the belief that white men were ordained to rule this
continent, a policy that in Dee Brown's words, "lifted land hunger to a
lofty plane."
"There are atrocity stories, dozens of them. I guess the mutilation of
Cheyenne and Arapaho women and children at Sand Creek was the worst. If
only because the victims were friendly towards their murderers and were
bayoneted, many of them, where they stood huddled beneath an American
flag. --Geoffrey Wolff, Newsweek[/b]
