Publisher's Summary

Charles Alexander Eastman (1858-1939), an educated and well-known Sioux, saw both sides of the great divide between Indians and whites, and he wrote 11 books attempting to reconcile the two cultures. This book is his illumination of Indian spiritual beliefs and practices. A convert to Christianity, Eastman never lost his sense of the wholeness and beauty of the Indian's relation to his existence and to the natural world. Part history and part reminiscence, told in very personal terms, and coupled with seven folk tales, this book treats the listener to a good look at the ethics and morality of a culture that so few people know about.

    "This should be on any 'must read' list"

    The first half is very enlightening for adults, it reveals much of ancient indian spirituality. The second half is lots of fun for adults and children, being a set of enjoyable native american fables.
    Absolutely excellent.

    Story
    "An insider's account"

    This is a short, matter-of-fact account of "the Indian way of life", as told by a real Native American who eventually assimilated into white culture.

    He explains that it is against the Indian's nature to reveal his spiritual ideas to outsiders, and this is what makes this book so valuable.

    Particularly interesting is a chapter in which Eastman details the supposed "magic" which some Indians allegedly possess.
