"This revised and updated edition combines the most important writings of Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa), who was the first American Indian medical doctor (the physician at Wounded Knee) as well as the co-founder of the Boy Scouts of America. Born in 1858, his writings are unique because he was the only great American Indian author who was actually raised to young adulthood in the traditional nomadic life of the pre-reservation era. At the 1933 World's Fair, he was presented with a special medal honoring the most distinguished achievements by an American Indian."--BOOK JACKET.

"Indian Boyhood" (1902) was the literary debut of Charles A. Eastman (Ohiyesa), a Santee Sioux whose eleven books aimed at bringing whites and Indians closer together. The favorable reception of the autobiographical Indian Boyhood would lead him to write such classic works as "Old Indian Days" (1907), "Wig warn Evenings: Sioux Folk Tales Retold" (with Elaine Goodale Eastman, 1909), "The Soul of the Indian" (1911), "From the Deep Woods to Civilization" (1916), and "Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains" (1918), all reprinted as Bison Books. At the beginning of "Indian Boyhood" Eastman recalls the 1862 Sioux Uprising in Minnesota that sent his family into exile in Canada. He describes his childhood there, which ended when his father, who had been presumed dead, appeared to take him back to the United States. An Indian boy's training, child-hood games, harvesting and feasts, legends told around a campfire--Eastman relates all aspects of the rich traditional life of the Santee Sioux, which had already passed away by the time this book was published.

This volume, first published in 2004, presents an overview of the history of the Plains Sioux as they became increasingly subject to the power of the United States in the 1800s. Many aspects of this story - the Oregon Trail, military clashes, the deaths of Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull, and the Ghost Dance - are well-known. Besides providing fresh insights into familiar events, the book offers an in-depth look at many lesser-known facets of Sioux history and culture. Drawing on theories of colonialism, the book shows how the Sioux creatively responded to the challenges of US expansion and domination, while at the same time revealing how US power increasingly limited the autonomy of Sioux communities as the century came to a close. The concluding chapters of the book offer a compelling reinterpretation of the events that led to the Wounded Knee massacre of December 29, 1890.
