One of the most shameful episodes in American history was the displacement/murder of the Indians as the country expanded Westward in the 19th century. It's still rarely taught in schools and widely ignored in our culture, but it can't be ignored. Dee Brown's sympathetic, gripping, and ultimately heartbreaking book tells the story from the Indians' perspective, using first hand accounts to create a vivid portrait of a an entire population robbed of their land, honor, and sometimes lives. It's one of the saddest books you will ever read, but it is absolutely essential. Every American should read it and think about it.
