About the Author

Charles Alexander Eastman (first named Ohiyesa) (February 19, 1858 - January 8, 1939) was a Native American physician, writer, national lecturer, and reformer. He was of Santee Sioux and Anglo-American ancestry. Active in politics and issues on American Indian rights, he worked to improve the lives of youths, and founded 32 Native American chapters of the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA). He also helped found the Boy Scouts of America. He is considered the first Native American author to write American history from the native point of view. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I highly recommend this very informative little book to anyone wanting to learn the truth of what the native people of the Americas were like before the invasion of Europeans. Clearly and concisely written. A wonderful addition to your library of information on Native American Indians.

This book outlines the Lakota spirituality before the "white man" came. Excellent read although it puts some of it in a rose-colored light.

Format: Paperback
This is a little book, but so involving and so inspiring.

Ohiyesa speaks of his own childhood, of his own life, of the believes and values he grew by, and he does it in a very simple, almost candid way. He doesn't use philosophy, although you may find yourself considering philosophical aspects of life while reading this. He just says what it was taught to him, and why it is valuable to him, with regard to life, to the way people should treat people and the other beings sharing this world, and the world itself.

He does speak about misunderstanding regarding his people and especially their more profound believes, but never in a polemical way.

It's really as if he were saying: "This is what I was handed down by people who came before me. This is why it's important and valuable to me. I'm handing it down to you. You're free to receive it, if you think it's worthy."

It's as simple as this.

Charles Eastman was my great uncle so I am a little biased in my opinion. It was great to read of his experiences and to learn a little about my ancestors.

I've now read four Eastman books and this one rates the same as the other three...exceptional. Eastman grew up on a reservation until his teenage years when his father began to teach him the ways of the white man. He became a well educated man who continued his work as a doctor and writer, helping his own race improve.

He is an excellent writer who speaks from first hand knowledge of the native American race. There is a nice biography of Eastman in his book The Indian To-day The Past and Future....

One of the few truly accurate depictions of the Old Ways before Euro influences were introduced. All cultures evolve and this book provides an intimate view of the process as it relates to the American Indian.
