by Russell Means
St. Martins Griffin
Russell Means is, without a doubt, the most controversial Indian leader of our time. Where White Men Fear to Tread tells the first-hand story of his life, in which he has done everything possible to dramatize the Indian desire for self-determination- from storming Mount Rushmore, to seizing Plymouth Rock, to running for president in 1988, to leading a seventy-one-day takeover of Wounded Knee in 1973, for which he is perhaps most famous.
An inspirational visionary, Means was one of the most magnetic voices in recent American history and his biography takes its place among the enduring works of our greatest leaders.
