    1. Liz Muñoz on said:

      This book really affected me It made me angry at the injustice that happened to these people Mattiessen really did his research for this book It s a detailed account of the incident at Wounded Knee in the 70 s, AIM American Indian Movement and the trials that followed thereafter Thankfully, the FBI lost in it s attempt to prevent this book from being published It s an important book and we have the right to learn about the attrocities committed against the Native Americans I feel strongly that t [...]

      Free Leonard Peltier Why Well, you have to read this book, but here s a synopsis that nobody but the most diehard 1970s FBI defender can try to deny.Matthiessen documents years of FBI spying on the American Indian Movement, including turning insiders, coupled with intimidation tactics and Often the FBI in South Dakota was working, if not hand in hand, at least on parallel tracks in this thuggery with folks such as a corrupt Pine Ridge Indian Reservation leadership, then Attorney General and now [...]

    3. Evan on said:

      Elegant, passionate investigative muckraking in the grand style messy, gnarly, informative, memorable and anger inducing This is a sweeping, detailed novelistic tour de force that raises questions than it answers and sometimes has you questioning the author s veracity while at the same time having you shaking your head in agreement over his findings and conclusions In investigating the state s case against Leonard Peltier and his cohorts, Matthiessen presents a disgraceful historical litany of [...]

    4. Sean Kottke on said:

      This saga of the conflict between the U.S government and Native Americans picks up where Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee leaves off, and makes the critical point that as excellent as that earlier book is, contemporary readers might get a false sense of complacency from it, that we live in a enlightened age and the struggles exist in the past This book, which focuses mainly on the events surrounding the shootout on the Pine Ridge reservation in 1975 and the story of Leonard Peltier, serves as a st [...]

    5. Dan on said:

      In the Spirit of Crazy Horse is one of the best non fiction books that I have read The story is a volatile cocktail of violence, poverty, intimidation and historical oppression And then when the FBI gets involved the problems only escalate from there This book logs in at nearly 800 pages The first 200 pages are slow going and quite unnecessary if you already have background on modern Sioux history and the American Indian Movement The story really gains traction with the events in the summer of 1 [...]

    6. J. on said:

      I read this book in 1992 as part of a graduate American Indian Law seminar conducted at the University of Colorado Denver UCD with Dr Glenn Morris the head of the Denver chapter of AIM as the instructor It was one of than several books used in the seminar but certainly for me one of the memorable and influential Also, the now infamous Dr Ward Churchill was a guest instructor on several occasions He never represented himself as a Tribal member and although the courts have questioned his ancestr [...]

    7. Karis North on said:

      Detailed almost to the point of excrutiating, but overall excellent recitation of the events leading up to the killing of 2 FBI agents in Oglala, on the Pine Ridge Reservation Matthiesen s research is painstaking, and once I realized how the book was organized it made sense and I could follow it he hides his explanation in the notes for each section The facts are incredibly convoluted, and there are so many layers to what happened Matthiesen does a pretty good job of tryin to sort it all out I m [...]

      33rd book read in 2017.Number 339 out of 598 on my all time book list.

    9. Chinook on said:

      This is the longest audiobook I ve listened to so far and I m glad it occurred to me to speed it up a bit because I was enjoying the information provided but it was starting to drag on a bit long and the library hold was about to expire for the second time I think this is a good book for everyone to better understand the background to the No DAPL movement The connection isn t made until much later in the book, but it s eventually suggested that the attempts by the FBI to disrupt AIM and liken th [...]

    10. Vicki on said:

      This is an important book, and I m impressed with the amount of research and time Matthiessen put into it, and I think the story needed to be told That said, I spent the vast majority of it wishing that an unbiased journalist would come shove him away from his computer, steal his notes, and take over writing the book for him I agree with him on pretty much everything, but still he was so biased that he undermined his own point of view At one point he actually argued that the fact that the murder [...]

    11. Ian on said:

      I don t think you can hold the shortcomings of this book against Matthiessen As with any complicated, partisan event, each perspective offers only one piece of the patchwork And this is an important one, even if some of the information that s emerged since its publication challenges some of aspects of Peltier s defenders arguments.Nonetheless, the book is commendable for its examination of the renewed wars against Native Americans as the coal, oil and uranium under their lands became increasingl [...]

    12. Ray on said:

      This is a lengthly and sobering account of the American Indian Movement in the 60 s and 70 s, and the continuing conflict between Native Americans and the U.S Government There are references to broken treaties between our government and Indian tribes, racism, and the poor conditions on Indian Reservations The main element of the book concerns Leonard Pelteir, convicted of murdering two FBI agents on a reservation during a shoot out between Native Americans and the FBI Apparently, the publishing [...]

    13. Rebecca on said:

      This book recounts an almost unbelievable tale of corruption and serves as a good reminder of just how ineffective and horrifying the justice system becomes in the hands of people with political agendas Sure, this account was biased, but it doesn t change the fact that a man was purposely railroaded and denied every ounce of fair treatment and the ability, through the withholding of evidence, for a fair trial Nor does it seem that the actions taken against the American Indian Movement, however t [...]

    14. Sasha on said:

      If you want to learn about what the FBI did to the American Indian Movement in the 1960s and 1970s with COINTELPRO and you want to learn about the events that led to the wrongful imprisonment of Leonard Peltier, then read this book We didn t stop oppressing and killing Indians in the 1800s

      Nonfiction Two words Leonard Peltier Two words Oglala Shoot out Two words FBI tampering Enough said.

    16. Jason Williams on said:

      Not sure if I m going to finish this one I m about 150 pages in and it is getting laborious.Published in 1980, Spirit of Crazyhorse has that same tone of righteous indignation as Zinn s People s History published around the same time But Mathiessen doesn t didn t know how to or didn t want to skim over any details, which makes for an indignant rambling of fact and name after fact and name that lacks narrative cohesion Nor is their any suspicion as to his argument or conclusion, so nothing intere [...]

    17. Stephanie on said:

      One of those books you have to read Peter Matthiessen s book In the Spirit of Crazy Horse concerns the conviction of Leonard Peltier for the murder of 2 FBI agents Although aware of the issues faced by Native American indians, I was completely taken aback by the sheer level of injustice and corruption involved in sending this man to jail I was even shocked to find he was still in prison Read the book it s well researched, balanced and very detailed and make up your own mind I ve just signed Amn [...]

    18. Teacatweaves on said:

      The author s message gets lost by going into too many extraneous events It s confusing to try and keep the trail of names straight It seems to me that a lot of people contributed to this gross miscarriage of justice It s nauseating that up to this day, it still hasn t been corrected.

    19. Dave on said:

      A compelling and passionate plea on how Leonard Peltier was railroaded by the injustice system that always seems to be working to undermine Indian sovereignty Sadly not only is Leonard still incarcerated, but this book continues to be as relevant and important to read as it was upon publication.

    20. Marco Etheridge on said:

      An important book with an important post publication history Copies of this book were suppressed by the FBI and others in US government Read Banned Books

    21. AimlessLady on said:

      Well researched, well written, and very informative Excellent read.

    22. Jennifer on said:

      Wow I had no idea this happened I m so disgusted with all the lies, coverups, and hate This is a very long book at 600 pages but it was so worth it.

    23. John Nielsen Boyack on said:

      Impressed by recent movement, I finally decided to finish this book Rewarding, to say very little of its impact to me personally, and its impact on the American Public The first several chapters are so painful to read if one holds even an ounce of empathy for the indigenous tribes of this continent, particularly under what I ll simply call the jurisdiction , or care, of the ever powerful United States Government Read it, then honorthetreaties.Just a few, short quotes to share, although each chap [...]

    24. James F on said:

      One of the most important events happening in the country today, though eclipsed in the media by the Clinton Trump circus, is the resistance by Native Americans and their allies to the Dakota Access Pipeline This book is important background to the Standing Rock struggle Despite the mention of Crazy Horse in the title, this is not a book about the nineteenth century genocide against the Indians, which is covered in a first chapter only as background What it is, is an account of the resurgence of [...]

      How one talk about a book that is so bias and so necessary The author Peter Matthiessen does not pretend to be objective but admits up front that this book was written to right a grievous injustice.An injustice that didn t start with the incident in Oglala in which three people were killed, an Indian and two FBI agents who were shot at close range, and of whose death Leonard Peltier has been held responsible and for which he is still doing time While this incident and the frame up of Leonard Pel [...]

    27. Nicholas Sly on said:

      An engrossing but frustrating book Make no mistake, this is not an unbiased account of the events on the plains Indian reservations in the 1970s The account is heavily slanted towards making the Indians look like innocent victims trampled by the government and societal forces, including leaning too heavily on unverifiable stories and what amounts to conspiracy theories, and not always presenting the other side or attempting to put together all the stories into a carefully documented account of w [...]

    28. Ted Diamond on said:

      There are so many good reviews of this book already, I hesitate to write another one What can I bring to the table Oh well, here goes.In 1974, I happened to be in the right place, at the right time Dee Brown s Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee had hit the bookshelves in 1970, and by 1974, eyes were opening to the history of injustice in the relations between whites and Native Americans Our high school play that year was an original script based loosely on Brown s narrative We studied the history, im [...]

    29. Siobhan Noble on said:

      picked up this book after enjoying Mathiessen s book The Snow Leopard and was instantly hooked Mathiessen s abilities as a writer and a storyteller make this huge book a fascinating page turner The book will draw you into the incident at Oglala, and will raise your consciousness about issues affecting American Indians, especially the Lakota Indians After reading this book, I feel I m a changed person I know Mathiessen has been accused of being biased towards the Indian cause, but I think actuall [...]

    30. MaryJo on said:

      I downloaded this book from Audible the week before Peter Mattiessen died, and listening to it when the obits came out Then the NYTimes magazine ran an article about an investigation into the death of Anna Mae Aquash The book had been on my list for along time,so that all reinforced my desire to read the book I was not aware of the legal controversies surrounding the book, the eight years of suppression while Mattiessen and Viking, his publisher, were being sued for libel, first by the former go [...]
