Rainy day reading

We've had that blustery, rainy weather over the weekend which I always find quite exhilarating. I've been reading Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee which I've put off for quite a while because - as Dee Brown says in his introduction - it's not a cheerful book. This classic text covers an extremely violent period of American history. Brown has a clear and appealing writing style which reads beautifully. Oh, but it's sad.
