To say Russell Means is controversial would be an understatement.
As one of the founders of A.I.M. he took part in the raidical upheaval of the 1970's.
He does not glorify his use of drugs or alcohol nor the life he was forced to lead as he grew into adulthood.His several marriages and children and his lack of ability to take responsibility for them.
There may be some discrepancies as to certain facts whether to time or upon purpose this is still a good read and an important one in regards to the modern state of the Native American affairs and how it was achieved and the work that continues.
It is also a story of renew as Russell finds his way back to the old ways and his culture.
