Tanis Parenteau delivers an efficient narration of Treuer's audiobook. Listeners, especially those familiar with the massacre at Wounded Knee, should make time for this history. Treuer's work is deeply researched, positioning the listener within the histories and first-person accounts of indigenous people of North America and making their experiences and views central to the listening experience, rather than those of European colonizers and U.S. Government officials. The result is an audiobook that seeks to greatly expand the public's general knowledge of Native American history. From the history of fraudulent government treaties to the brutality of the Gold Rush, listeners are provided uncompromising accounts of the oppression and violence tribes have experienced. Parenteau's presentation is clear and thoughtful throughout. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
