Alvin M. Josephy, Jr., author of Indian Heritage of America Lame
Deer is a magnificent American....He has demolished so much
misinformation and so many stereotypes about Indians and their
values and ways of life that we should be ashamed of how little we
have actually known of all that he has to tell us. As an individual
and as a representative of his people, he is someone whom all
readers should get to know -- not just those who are interested in
Indians, but every American. The book is destined to become a
classic. It will be read, and reread, and quoted from through the
years. Personally, I am enormously enriched by it.
Rober Brunett author of The Tortured Americans A masterpiece.
