Gospel of the Red Man: An Indian Bible, by Ernest Thompson Seton


Product Description

One of the best books on Native Americans ever written. Reveals how Indians once lived and what they believed spiritually. As we move further from when Native Americans were living completely free and unencumbered in what was to become the United States, before the arrival of the white man, it becomes increasingly difficult to preserve or remember the way of life that they had. Seton has preserved the most important information, gathered from the best sources when it could still be accurately found. Like other true Bibles, it includes creation stories and mythology as well as the trials and tribulations of the people. Chapters include The Soul of the Red Man, covering spiritual beliefs; The Ancient Way is about family life, laws and medicine men; The Wisdom of the Old Men covers ancient teachings and myths; and Prophets of the Red Race shares stories on 13 different prophets, including Hiawatha, Tecumseh, Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Wabasha, Geronimo and Wovoka. The Epilogue emphasizes the failures of the white race due to money-madness, and how important it is to bring back an awareness not based on materialism.
