I waited very impatiently for Saga of the Sioux by Dwight Jon Zimmerman to arrive at my local library. I have always been interested in Native American culture and history, and when I saw this adaptation of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, it went immediately on my wish list. This passage is from the Introduction.
Today it is difficult, if no impossible, to understand how these people could have done what they did and feel no shame. But that’s what happened-and not to just one tribe or nation. As Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee revealed, from sea to shining sea, it happened to them all.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
