Eyewitness at Wounded Knee (Great Plains Photography)
by James Austin Hanson
Publisher's Description
This book documents in historic photographs and well-researched text the tragic massacre of some 250 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee in December 1890. Eyewitness at Wounded Knee brings together and assesses for the first time some 150 photographs that were made before and immediately after the "battle," in which many unarmed Sioux women, children, and elderly were shot and killed. Included are the previously unpublished photographs of two itinerants who were at the scene, George Trager and Clarence Moreledge. The text includes both the Sioux and the Cavalry accounts of the incident. The account enhances "appreciation of the haunting images in this first book-length photographic history of the Battle of Wounded Knee."--the publisher.
