The Essential Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa) : Light on the Indian World, Paperback Book

The Essential Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa) : Light on the Indian World Paperback


This revised and updated edition contains the most important writings of Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa), the first Native American author to live simultaneously in both the traditional world of the Santee Sioux and the modern civilization of the white man.

Dr. Eastman also attended the injured at the Battle of Wounded Knee.

Ohiyesa's works represent a complete explanation of the philosophy and moral code of the Plains Indian.

Ohiyesa's message speaks to every person who seeks a spiritual way in the midst of a society increasingly dominated by materialism and industrial technology.

Sun Dance chief, James Trosper writes, It is a small miracle that these important spiritual teachings have been preserved for us.

This new edition contains 10 sepia photographs from Eastman's life and a thought-provoking foreword by Raymond Wilson.
