Matthiessen, Peter. IN THE SPIRIT OF CRAZY HORSE. Viking Press, New York, 1991, 3rd Edition, and First Revised American Edition. First publication was forcibly withdrawn by US government. After 8 year fierce legal battle, this is the revised 1991 reissue. In this authoritative classic Matthiessen writes about American Indian activist Russell Means and presents startling new evidence supporting the man on trial, Peltier. His repeated claims of innocence is supported by Matthiessen, arguing persuasively that at the very least he deserves a new, and fair trial. His case makes clear why traditional Indian concept of sacred inviolability of the earth is so important, all the more so as increasing populations destroy the precious resources of the world. Scarce. Signed by Peter Matthiessen on half-title page. Dustjacket, Near Fine.
