From the Heart: Voices of the American Indian (Paperback)
Shipped to Tattered Cover in 3 to 7 days
In From the Heart, Lee Miller retrieves the voices of Indian people over five centuries and weaves them into an alternate history of the continent, while introducing us to the grandeur and diversity of the 500 nations who held this land before the first European set foot on it. Here, collected in one volume, is the testimony of more than 250 Indian civilizations - of the Aztec king Montezuma, the Seminole leader Osceola, Tecumseh, Cochise, Sitting Bull, Geronimo, and Sarah Winnemucca. Through their eyes - and through the eyes of the white men who fought, betrayed, and, on rare occasions, defended them - we see the shaping of events of the past in a radically different light, one that is tragic yet shows courage in the face of adversity.
