History. Nonfiction. HTML:The "fascinating" #1 New York Times bestseller that awakened the world to the destruction of American Indians in the nineteenth-century West (The Wall Street Journal).
First published in 1970, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee generated shockwaves with its frank and heartbreaking depiction of the systematic annihilation of American Indian tribes across the western frontier. In this nonfiction account, Dee Brown focuses on the betrayals, battles, and massacres suffered by American Indians between 1860 and 1890. He tells of the many tribes and their renowned chiefs??from Geronimo to Red Cloud, Sitting Bull to Crazy Horse??who struggled to combat the destruction of their people and culture. Forcefully written and meticulously researched, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee inspired a generation to take a second look at how the West was won. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dee Brown including rare photos from the author's personal colle… (altro)

History is written by the victors, which makes you wonder how many more of the things we learn about have a completely different narrative from the other side. Like Manifest Destiny, for example. From what I recall from my K-12 history classes, this was a largely positive event, stretching the US from sea to shining sea. There's some token acknowledgment that it meant "resettling" the Native Americans, but it's not dwelled upon. Dee Brown's Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, though, tells the story of the settling of the American continent from the people who were there first.

Since he focuses on the era of Manifest Destiny (there's some information about how European arrival in the Americas played out, but it's a small portion of the book), Brown confines his focus to the West. It's heartwrenching to read about from the perspective of now, because you know that each chief that tries to negotiate in good faith with the white people will eventually be cheated and that each warrior who tries to fight back against the people who were eroding their way of life will eventually lose. Brown uses as many Native American sources as possible to show how the westward march of white settlers progressed from the point of view of the people who were pushed away from the land and lifestyle they'd always known in order to make room. With each passing year, restrictions on their territory become tighter and tighter, but their inability to safeguard even the small promises that they were able to extract is just relentlessly sad to read about.

I think it's important to wrestle with all parts of American history, and remember that many of what we think of as gains come from losses by someone else. As such, I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who's interested in how this country has treated its original residents. ( )

A grim and hard to read factual account of the genocide of the Native American. The author never let's his emotions get the better of himself but lets his anger show in the baldly stated facts of history.
This book should be read alongside the stories of the destruction of the Aztecs and Incas by the Spainish. There is a similar disregard for (foreign/non Christian) humanity. A willingness to do anything for gold or land, and an inability to maintain the rule of law in the face of a short term gain.
This story is still being repeated somewhere in the world, like the Amazon basin where indigenous tribes are being pressure to move off their land make way for development.
It will continue to happen while there are people who don't read or write books like this one. ( )

> LA TRAGÉDIE DE LA CONQUÊTE DE L’OUEST. — Historien et bibliothécaire de l'université de l'Illinois, Dee Brown a consacré sa vie à l'histoire des États-Unis au XIXᵉ siècle, jusqu’à son décès en 2002.
Publié pour la première fois en 1970, Enterre mon cœur à Wounded Knee a été traduit dans le monde entier. Pour une bonne raison : ce livre a changé pour toujours la vision que nous avons de l’histoire des États-Unis et de la relation de ce pays avec les premiers habitants du continent américain.
Largement basé sur des documents inédits (archives militaires et gouvernementales, procès-verbaux des traités, récits de première main…), il retrace les trente années décisives, de 1860 à 1890, qui ont marqué ce que l’on appelle « la conquête de l'Ouest » : de la longue Marche des Navajos en 1860 au massacre de Wounded Knee en 1890, Enterre mon cœur se fait la chronique de la dépossession des Indiens qui perdent leurs terres, leur liberté et souvent la vie au nom de l’expansion américaine.
Si l’histoire est souvent écrite du point de vue des vainqueurs, ce livre donne la parole aux vaincus et compose un chant tragique et inoubliable.
Ce classique, qui était depuis quelques années épuisé en France, fait enfin l’objet d’une nouvelle édition entièrement révisée : un superbe cahier photos accompagne cette nouvelle traduction. La préface de Joseph Boyden, le célèbre écrivain canadien d’origine irlando-amérindienne, met en perspective l’apport de cet ouvrage à la relecture de l’histoire humaine.

> EXTRAIT DE LA PRÉFACE DE JOSEPH BOYDEN, auteur du Chemin des âmes et des Saisons de la solitude, à paraître en août 2009. — C’est en 1982 que j’ai pour la première fois entendu parler d’Enterre mon cœur à Wounded Knee […] Il avait été publié en Amérique plus de dix ans auparavant […] À la lecture de ce livre, ma façon de voir le monde, mes opinions politiques, ma sensibilité ont subi une véritable révolution conceptuelle. L’adolescent à problèmes que j’étais s’est retrouvé contraint de regarder autour de lui. Mais surtout, fait prendre conscience du sang qui coulait dans mes veines, le sang d’ancêtres Ojibwés et européens […] fort que nous devons comprendre, dans toute leur complexité, notre histoire commune et les actions de nos ancêtres avant de pouvoir reconnaître la responsabilité de notre sang dans cette folie meurtrière. C’est seulement à ce moment-là que nous pourrons avancer tous ensemble […] Dix-sept ans après que je me le suis procuré, ce livre continue de guider ma plume. Parfois en sortent les voix des opprimés, parfois encore, celles de fantômes qui exigent simplement qu’on les écoute. Nous sommes tout à la fois les conquérants et les conquis, dans un même corps, et c’est cela que Dee Brown nous invite à reconnaître.

Dee Brown se v této knize pokusil zmapovat temnou kapitolu amerických dějin, kterou bezesporu dobývání amerického Západu je, a vytvořil fascinující dokument o období let 60 – 90 předminulého století, o období takzvaných indiánských válek, kdy se vlivem stále rostoucí expanze bílých osadníku, valících se na Západ jako nespoutaná lavina s definitivní platností dovršil tragický osud původních obyvatel severoamerického kontinentu.
