Fitzgerald's work focuses on Charles Eastman's (Ohiyesa's) compelling story of embracing the traditional cultural ideals of his nomadic ancestors while living in the modern industrialized world of his time. Born in a buffalo-hide tipi in 1858, Eastman was raised as a traditional Sioux Indian in his youth, but was catapulted into the dominant white society of his time, becoming a medical doctor who cared for wounded Indians after the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee and helping to co-found the Boy Scouts of America in 1910.
This book features: selections from Charles Eastman's five most important books; more than 275 color and black & white vintage photographs, paintings, vignettes, timelines, and maps; nine interviews with contemporary American Indian leaders on their experience of "living in two worlds"; and thought-provoking discussion questions and lists of free supplementary study materials.
