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.


What the Critics Say

"A giant of a book...Indescribably touching, extraordinarily intelligent." (Los Angeles Times)
"The first solidly documented account of the U.S. government's renewed assault upon American Indians that began in the 1970s." (Dee Brown, author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee)

A complete waste of time

What a bunch of liberal apologist drivel! Can't believe I have wasted the time and money on this book. Nearly halfway through and should have stopped hours ago.
