The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee by David Treuer


David Treuer's latest book is described as an 'essential, intimate story of a resilient people in a transformative epoch'. 

Treuer brings  his skills of anthropology, of creative non-fiction and of reporting to the new book "The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee - Native America 1890 to the Present".  Treuer's writing is skilled and personal "a history of Indian lives, not Indian deaths".

The New York Times said "Treuer is mounting a challenge to the whole idea of Indian identity as depicted by both Native and white writers."
