Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 7/28/2013

    " When you see a tiger, it is always like a dream. Beautiful photographs, magnificent animal, surprisingly dull book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathon | 8/27/2012

    " Not Matthiessen's best, but it's still a nice, well-written little book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Hundley | 8/4/2011

    " Tigers in the wild face likely extinction in all parts of the world, India, Sumatra, Amur. Their territory is disappearing and fragmenting reducing their range and ability to breed. A melancholy book but with beautiful pictures. I love reading Matthiessen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette | 4/7/2011

    " I have great respect for Peter Matthiessen's work and integrity. His writing is quite scholarly and often a little dry, so sometimes it reads like a textbook. Hence my middling rating. Still worth the read, though, especially if you like big cats. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 3/18/2011

    " A thorough documentation of Wounded Knee and the case of Leonard Peltier. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauren | 9/2/2010

    " I wanted to learn more about what has happened with the native americacn population in my lifetime, but the way this book is written I just can't get into this book. Don't think I'll finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mr.B | 8/25/2010

    " Nonfiction. Two words... Leonard Peltier. Two more words... Oglala Shoot-out. Two more words... FBI tampering. Enough said. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 6/29/2010

    " I will review soon...needs time :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 6/24/2010

    " Amazing account of the U.S. government's suppression of the American Indian Movement in the 1970's, including the framing of Leonard Peltier. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 5/30/2010

    " This is the best book I have ever read as to the insight of what it must be like to be a lakota indian past and present. Must read for any american. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roxanne | 2/8/2010

    " This book sparked my interest in the AIM and lead me to do my own research regarding the movement, the injustices, and the truth! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 11/29/2009

    " It's very thoroughly researched, but I feel as though Matthiessen's biased, passionate voice often dominates an otherwise persuasive argument. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juliana | 10/20/2009

    " Learned some history and confirmed some thoughts. It was interesting to hear about the ancestors and to know the rest of the story. I got this book for Christmas at Tim and Gogi's a few years back then passed it on. Good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clif | 10/18/2009

    " A wonderfully written true story of Ameerican injustice. I haven't trusted the feds since I read it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casschwich | 9/28/2009

    " It is sobering what our government can do to an individual. If I had read this before 9/11 I wouldn't have believed it, but now Matthiessen's premise that Leonard Peltier was not given a fair trial is all too believable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Travula | 6/18/2009

    " Every American should read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Georgina | 4/5/2009

    " Very interesting book on the circumstances leading up to Native American,Leonard Peltier,'s imprisonment. "
