Russell Means was the most controversial Native American leader of the 20th century.
Where White Men Fear to Tread is the well-detailed, firsthand story of Russell Means' life - a life in which he did everything possible to dramatize and justify the Native American aim of self-determination. He stormed Mount Rushmore, seized Plymouth Rock, ran for president in 1988, and, most notoriously, led a 71-day takeover of Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in 1973. This visionary autobiography by one of America's most magnetic personalities will fascinate, educate, and inspire. It has been said that knowledge of Means' story is essential for any clear understanding of American Indians during the last half of the 20th century.
