The American West, 1860-1890: years of broken promises, disillusionment, war and massacre.

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.

First published in 1970, Dee Brown's brutal and compelling narrative changed the way people thought about the original inhabitants of America, and focused attention on a national disgrace.

“It just doesn't seem to lose any of its impact.”

Originally published in 1970 this is as timeless a work of history as you can get, however, it was very much a book of its time when it was first published. Subtitled ‘An Indian History of the American West’, it... More

“Great history”

It's a shame that when the American west was conquered all its history was wiped out. Yes the native Americans were savage but they were only trying to protect a way of live. Great book to read and very moving
