An Ojibwe from the Leech Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota and an unromantic chronicler of Native American culture and literature, David Treuer is the author of the novels Prudence, Little, The Hiawatha, and The Translation of Dr. Appeles. He is a professor of literature and creative writing at the University of Southern California, a Pushcart Prize winner, and a Guggenheim Fellowship recipient. In The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee, Treuer offers an epic counter-narrative to the conventional histories of Native American life from the 1890 massacre to the present.
