Floyd A. O'Neil and Susan McKay edited Wounded Knee 1973 with the help of the author's widow, June K Lyman. Alvin Josephy, Jr., who describes this book as "a very human document of an 'odd man out' in great personal travail," is the author of Red Power: The American Indians' Fight for Freedom (Bison Book, 1985).
"In a day of activist concern over the heated issues of society, this book is a timely reminder of the complexity of finding appropriate solutions."-Utah Historical Quarterly * Utah Historical Quarterly * "This book succeeds in sending chills through the mind of any reader who has ever endured multi-agency participation in any form. . . . Cultures clashed at Wounded Knee, and the echoes can still be heard in [these] pages."-Wilson Library Bulletin * Wilson Library Bulletin * "This book, a diary of Stanley David Lyman, tells with gripping immediacy what went on among the besiegers. . . . Wounded Knee 1973 is an important document that provides a missing perspective to what Lyman believed was a 'revolution,' pure and simple. But as he puts down his thoughts and emotions of those critical times, in which lives quite literally were in the balance, Lyman sees a government confused, poor communications, ignorance, bureaucratic ineptitude and intolerance to the extreme."-Salt Lake Tribune * Salt Lake Tribune * "Superintendent Lyman's running account of the tense events of the siege, as he saw them, [supplies] one of the most important and hitherto missing perspectives of Wounded Knee II."-Alvin M. Josephy, Jr. in his foreword -- Alvin M. Josephy Jr.
