    Wonderful Perspective

    Who better to chronicle the great deeds, sorrows, bravery and honor of some of America's greatest chiefs than a Santee Sioux? Physician Charles A. Eastman seeks to correct many misunderstandings about Native Americans and portrays leaders in the Sioux, Cheyenne and Nez Perce nations in a realistic light.

    Here are the stories of some of the famous chiefs, Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse and Red Cloud, as well as tales of those whose names may not be as familiar to us, such as Two Strike, Dull Knife, Hole-in-the-Day, Tamahay or Gall. Highlighted by beautiful black and white portraits, this book is a real eye opener. Anyone who loves the history of the American West will enjoy reading this interesting perspective, told with honor by a true American.
