The first half is very enlightening for adults, it reveals much of ancient indian spirituality. The second half is lots of fun for adults and children, being a set of enjoyable native american fables.

This is a short, matter-of-fact account of "the Indian way of life", as told by a real Native American who eventually assimilated into white culture.
He explains that it is against the Indian's nature to reveal his spiritual ideas to outsiders, and this is what makes this book so valuable.
Particularly interesting is a chapter in which Eastman details the supposed "magic" which some Indians allegedly possess.

I loved reading this book. this book was a way to look through the eyes of someone with a different view of the world. I liked Charles Alexander Eastman's View. the narrator made this book. in the preface or forward you can hear the excitement Scott Peterson had in reading something from a fellow native American. read this book you won't be sorry.
Enjoyed hearing the words of Alexander Eastman and capture that what was happening then in society is still happening today
