In 1891, after the massacre at Wounded Knee, a Sioux man named Plenty Horses shot dead one Lieutenant Casey. Told mainly through Native American eyewitness testimonies, this account of his trials, which hinged on whether criminal acts were justified in war, also charts the Plains Indians’ four-decade struggle against a United States determined to seize their lands, reveals Plenty Horses’ despair at reservation life, and exposes the devastating effects of assimilation on Native American culture.
