Recommended to me by Roy Harper (it’s a part influence on his song “I Hate the White Man”), it is the true account of a Sioux Indian, both spiritual and historical. It’s a moment inside the heart of a man watching the destruction of his culture in early 1890s America. It ranks alongside Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.
