Overview

Charles A. Eastman's book, "The Soul of the Indian," is an extremely valuable insight into the Native American world view, especially since he was a Sioux Indian himself. This book is valuable for anyone who will be involved with people of other cultures. It is a caution to take the time and effort to learn the other man's culture and world view in order to communicate meaningfully. While Eastman was fully conversant with both Indian an American culture it is doubtful that he ever found an American counterpart who knew and respected his Indian culture and without placing it in judgement. Therefore, as Eastman grew older he was inexorably drawn back to his original Indian world view and values, being increasingly disappointed with American culture and values. He attempted to reconcile his Indian culture and world view with biblical values and teaching. However, I think this attempt was not successful. One is left with deep respect for Eastman and sadness for the tragedy of the Native American.

    Great insight into the Native American Soul

    This was my first look into discovering the unadulterated Native American identity. It's words are very insightful and have stayed with me since the first time I read it 11 years ago. I absolutely love it.

    Its a persuasive truth

    This is one of those books that can make a dedicated reader question many things that are considered standard. Its gives great insight into the minds and ways of native americans. from spirits to christ this books hits it all. I really enjoyed the part of the book that focuses on the ways of the white man. Overall it is a good read, and will make you think.
