Product description

Review

If you enjoyed There There by Tommy Orange, read The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee
Treuer's forthcoming counternarrative blends memoir - a retelling of his own family and tribe's experiences - and in-depth, detailed reporting on 125 years of native history.

Washington Post

A sweeping history of Native American life from the Wounded Knee massacre to the present-disputing the commonly held belief that the infamous 1890 massacre destroyed the Native American population and spirit. Treuer, whose mother is an Ojibwe Indian and who grew up on the reservation before leaving to attend Princeton, presents a more nuanced and hopeful vision of the past and future of Native Americans ― Vanity Fair

The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee is the essential, intimate story of a resilient people in a transformative era. ― The Rumpus

David Treuer offers an examination of Native American history. His book follows Dee Brown's 1970 work Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and explores more recent Native history. He uses his background as an anthropologist as well as his own experience growing up Obijwe on a reservation in Minnesota. ― Bustle

Treuer chronicles the long histories of Native North America, showing the transformation and endurance of many nations. All American history collections will benefit from this important work by an important native scholar. ― Library Journal (starred)

[Treuer's] scholarly reportage of these 125 years of Native history...comes to vivid life for every reader. ― Booklist (starred)

Treuer ... is a wonderful novelist, and if anybody can tell this story in the way it needs to be told and retold, until the end of time, he can ― LitHub

Treuer provides a sweeping account of how the trope of the vanishing Indian has distorted our current understanding of Native peoples. Instead of seeing Wounded Knee as the final chapter, he recovers the importance of World War II, urban migration, casinos, and the computer age in reshaping the modern Native American experience. The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee is written with conviction and illuminates the past in a deeply compelling way. ― Nancy Isenberg, author of White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America

An ambitious, gripping, and elegantly written synthesis that is much more than the sum of its excellent parts - which include a rich array of Native lives, Treuer's own family and tribe among them - The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee brings a recognition of indigenous vitality and futurity to a century of modern Indian history. ― Philip J. Deloria, Professor of History, Harvard University

Almost 130 years on from that massacre in the snow of South Dakota, Treuer finds that the Indian heart is still beating, and its people are finding ways to be not just in America, but of America. ― Sunday Times

Review

An informed, moving and kaleidoscopic portrait... Treuer's powerful book suggests the need for soul-searching about the meanings of American history and the stories we tell ourselves about this nation's past. - New York Times Book Review, front page

If you enjoyed There There by Tommy Orange, read The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee

Treuer's forthcoming counternarrative blends memoir - a retelling of his own family and tribe's experiences - and in-depth, detailed reporting on 125 years of native history. - Washington Post

Sweeping, essential history...Treuer's storytelling skills shine...[an] elegant handling of [a] complex narrative - The Economist

In a marvel of research and storytelling, an Ojibwe writer traces the dawning of a new resistance movement born of deep pride and a reverence for tradition. Treuer's chronicle of rebellion and resilience is a manifesto and rallying cry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative, easy to read, great research. It is really interesting to follow the rise of a bee generation of natives albeit the oppression and pillage of their homelands. Really enjoyed reading this book.
