Brave Are My People
Indian Heroes Not Forgotten

By Frank Waters

“Frank Waters is the premier writer of the American West. Whatever we have learned from everything else that he has written, we find it coalesced here. Frank saved his best and deepest book for the last.”

Vine Deloria, Jr., author of Custer Died for Your Sins

“Waters looks at an assemblage of great American Indians across the continent. In his lyrical fashion, he tells … why they will never be forgotten.”

Dee Brown, author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

“A valuable introduction to Native American history.”

Publishers Weekly

Pontiac, Sequoyah, Geronimo, Sitting Bull, Chief Joseph, and Chief Seattle. These legendary names are familiar even to the uninitiated in Native American history, yet the life stories of these great spiritual leaders have been largely unknown.

In this, his last book, internationally celebrated author Frank Waters makes vivid the poignant, humorous, and tragic stories of these neglected and heroic Native Americans. From the brilliant tactical abilities of famed warriors to the eloquent oratory of indigenous philosophers, poets, and statesmen, the profiles in Brave Are My People help correct this error of omission.

Now in paperback, Brave Are My People represents a major contribution to Water’s remarkable literary journeys through Indian culture.

Frank Waters (1902–1995), one of the finest chroniclers of the American Southwest, wrote twenty–eight works of fiction and nonfiction.   More info →
