Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee covers the history of the Native Americans near the end of the 19th century. It is biased on the side of the Natives and doesn’t mince words when it comes to broken promises and treaties and forced relocation. I knew the federal government had treated the Native Americans poorly, but I never realized just what ramifications Manifest Destiny had on them or quite the extent of the poor treatment. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in history.
