A great primer for this book would be for a person to watch the video, Incident At Oglala. Leonard Peltier was given the shaft for the deaths of two F.B.I. agents on the Pine Ridge reservation and at the time this book was written had been sitting in prison for 23 years. The year was 1998. He is still in prison serving 2 life sentences plus 7 years for a crime that the government admits they cannot prove. What is amazing about this case is the amount of documents that have been found that actually shows that the government was railroading a person that they could not prove actually committed these murders . Of course there is still a mountain of documents that the F.B.I. either claims not to have and or will not release. This book is amazing because this is straight from Peltier himself. I highly recommend this book to anyone that can find a copy.
