Eyewitness at Wounded Knee
By Richard E. Jensen, R. Eli Paul & John E. Carter
Hardcover, 210 pages ($55)

The first book-length photographic history of the infamous 1890 event that for all practical purposes marked the end of America's bloody Indian Wars, this collection of 150 "lost" images (taken by two itinerant photographers whose work was never published until now), with extensive commentary by historical experts, reveals both sides of the massacre at a South Dakota Sioux reservation that claimed more than 250 lives, including those of many Indian women and children.
