THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT OF "BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE."
Historian Dee Brown's groundbreaking revisionist history of the encroachment of settlers on Native Americans and their lands in the latter half of the 19th century eventually sold more than five million copies and remained in print for decades. This is the first submission of the book to Brown's editors, which Brown later had bound for his home library.
