The Gospel of the Redman
Ernest Thompson Seton was a prolific writer, artist and student of nature. Co-founder of the Boy Scouts, Mr. Seton had a deep respect for the environment which is demonstrated throughout his numerous books about plants and wildlife. This book, which focuses on the spirituality of American Indians, has been praised as exemplifying the principles of numerous religions. Mr. Seton's thought provoking observations about the spirituality of a people who were at the time, considered savages and heathens, makes this book truly unusual. His praise for a civilization based on nature and community, not one focused on “money greed” like that of white men allows the reader a unique chance to experience American Indian values through Seton’s eyes, thus making this book applicable to readers of all backgrounds.
The Gospel of the Redman contains a new introduction by Seton's daughter, Dee Seton Barber , a new foreword by Paul Goble, Seton's American Indian sketches, photographs from throughout Seton's life, and an extensive bibliography of his works.
