Publisher's Summary

Here is the story of Leonard Peltier and the FBI's war on the American Indian Movement.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, in which an Indian and two federal agents were killed. Eventually, four members of the American Indian Movement were indicted on murder charges in the deaths of the two agents. Behind this violent chain of events lie issues of great complexity and profound historical resonance, brilliantly explicated by Peter Matthiessen in this controversial book.

Must read for a true picture of america

An excellent audiobook. Very well read with great voices. Very thorough and detailed research excellently excellently presented by peter matthiassen. Thank you peter for doing all the work to bring this information into access of the public. And may america wake up to the injustices served to leonard peltier and recognize it as a great example of the true nature of the american "legal" system

Good story

Would you listen to In the Spirit of Crazy Horse again? Why?

Yes. It's a compelling history of government abuse of power

What does Mark Bramhall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Local feel of desolation and the rough hewn life.
