From the Deep Woods to Civilization is the sequel to Indian Boyhood. Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa) gives his account of what it was like to transition from the ways of his Inidan life to that of the white man. His father, long thought dead, had converted to Christianity and wished the same for his son as well as receiving education in the white man's school. At the age of 15, Ohiyesa must learn to balance the old familiar life of the American Indian with that of the new in the world of the white man, one of his first acts being the cutting of his long hair and attending school. It also chronicles his life of college to becoming a doctor at Pine Ridge in South Dakota, his marriage to Elaine Goodale, and his involvement in politics, the YMCA, and Boy Scouts of America.

An eye opening look into the plight of the Native American, told from first hand accounts of the author. If you want to take an honest look into a dark time in this nation's history, a view uncluttered with bias and prejudice, then you will find this book most fulfilling and enlightening.

interesting story

I like this writer a lot. I read another of his and plan to check out his other works. This work is mainly a look at the white mans world from his perspective of an Indian. It strikes me as fair, measured and compassionate.

From Deep Woods

The most enlightening look into how western expansion effected Native Americans. A view from their eyes as to what was happening to their world. I returned to re-listen to chapters. An important read.

Wonderful story in the author's own words.
