Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Duration: 2 hours 19 minutes
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 eleven 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, part reminiscence, it is told in very personal terms and coupled with seven folk tales.
