(Contemporary Literary Criticism)

Brown, Dee 1908–

Brown, an American novelist and nonfiction writer of the frontier West, is the author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, a best-selling history of thirty years of Indian wars. Creek Mary's Blood, a novelization of the same material, is generally considered less successful than the earlier book.
