Abstract
 
Description
Raised as a Santee Sioux in the 1860s and 1870s, Charles A Eastman (Ohiyesa) wrote eleven books in which he attempted to correct misapprehensions whites had about Indians and t bring the two races closer together.

In the present volume he offers biographical sketches of 15 great Indian leaders, most of them Sioux and some of them, like Red Cloud and Rain-in-the-Face, friends, and acquaintances of the author. In vivid vignettes Eastman captures the character, achievements and historic importance of such leaders as Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Little Crow, Chief Joseph and Spotted Tail.

Enhanced with 12 portraits, these inspiring pieces will be of great interest to students of American Indian culture and history as well as to anyone who enjoys reading about the larger-than-life figures who dominated Indian life in the second half of the nineteenth century.
