Dee Brown is the conscience of America. This book, which I read many years ago, is one of the few that has stayed with me for decades. Reading Sarah Vowell's account in the Wordy Shipmates of the massacre of the Pequods by the Massachusetts Bay Colony put me again in mind of this American classic, a bloody chronicle of the subsequent history of the ethnic cleansing of the American Indian. I echo the sentiments of those who say it should be required reading in every high school in America.
