Dee Brown Dies; Rewrote History of West in 'Wounded Knee'

Dee Brown wrote 29 books, fiction and non-fiction before he died Thursday at 94. He will live on in the pages of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. Published in 1970, the book revised the history of Western expansion and enlightened millions about the brutal treatment of Native Americans. Hear NPR's Jacki Lyden.
