The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee is a story of Native American resilience and reinvention, adapted for young adults from the adult nonfiction book of the same name.

Since the late 1800s, it has been believed that Native American civilization has been wiped from the United States. The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee argues that Native American culture is far from defeated—if anything, it is thriving as much today as it was one hundred years ago.
 
The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee looks at Native American culture as it exists today—and the fight to preserve language and traditions. 
 
Adapted for young readers, this important young adult nonfiction book is perfect educational material for children and adults alike.
