    1. Rex Alan Smith Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Moon of Popping Trees book, this is one of the most wanted Rex Alan Smith author readers around the world.

    2. This is considered by many to be the most objective account of the events leading up to and occurring at Wounded Knee on December 29, 1890 I must admit that this is not the most readable account of those events I have ever encountered, but I can recommend the book on its fair and objective treatment of the subject I had always thought that the battle was a massacre from the very start, with the Lakota tribesmen being the victims of yet another broken treaty and a catastrophe perpetrated against [...]

    3. This is a brilliant example of scholarly history, one of the very best works of historical study I have ever read Smith analyzes the Battle of Wounded Knee by putting it in its total historical context in a way that allows the reader to truly visualize and understand the perspective of both the Native Americans and the White Settlers The reader can really feel themselves in either side s shoes From that standpoint, Smith tells the story of what happened or what can be reconstructed from the sour [...]

    4. This was an almost unbiased account of what led up to the Battle of Wounded Knee It was accurately and brilliantly written Instead of assigning blame in this tragedy, Rex Alan Smith, tells you the whole story of the hysteria on both sides that led to this historical tragedy.

    5. I read this book a few years ago while on a road trip through the West, a very appropriate backdrop It made me very sad It is definitely worth your time if you are interested in history, in particular, the history of Native American treatment in America s early years.

    6. Please white man, try to tell us what the Sioux were thinking 3 stars because for the time period it was a groundbreaking work However, Rex Alan Smith said it was mostly a battle hard to have a battle with people you have disarmed It s out of date anthropologists and archaeologists have worked to reconstruct the scene at Wounded Knee, we can answer some of these questions now, and finally, you just can t justify a massacre To say Wounded Knee was partly a massacre hardly captures it.
