In the Spirit of Crazy Horse is a book by Peter Matthiessen which covers the events leading up to the 1975 violence at Wounded Knee, Leonard Peltier's extradition, the Supreme Court case, and his subsequent conviction.  It was first published in 1983. Leonard Peltier was convicted of murder in 1977 and sentenced to life in prison for the 1975 killing of two FBI agents, after a trial which the author and many others allege was based on fabricated evidence, widespread fraud and government misconduct. The author was an American novelist, naturalist, wilderness writer, zen teacher and CIA Operative. This book was banned from the US for eight years and  Matthiessen focuses on the injustice inflicted on Peltier and argues that he deserved a new and just trial. If you are a collector of banned books and a supportor of Native American rights, this is a book you want on your library shelf.
