Ernest Thompson Seton (1860-1946) was a noted writer, wildlife artist, and one of the earliest campaigners in support of both natural world, and the rights of the American Plains Indians. In The Gospel of the Redman, Seton and his wife Julia, explore the beliefs and practices of the Plains Indians and offer the inspirational example of the famous leaders of the Plains Indians tribes as a guide for modern world, and as a possible solution to its problems.

This commemorative edition contains for the first time some of Seton’s drawings, a selection of photographs illustrating his life, information about his role as founder of the Boy Scouts of America, and his friendship with prominent American Indian leaders. It also includes an introduction by Seton’s daughter Dee Seton Barber.

Reviews (hide/show)

“…The authors [of this book] inform their readers about the richness of the Native American way of life—all too often ignored by the dominant white culture—with a devotion to detail that celebrates the contributions of the First Americans.”
ForeWord Reviews
“How good it is to see the thoughtful tributes of Mr. Seton brought forth for a new generation of readers. We so desperately need the Native wisdom in these times.”
James Alexander Thom, author of Follow the River and Warrior Woman: The Exceptional Life Story of Nonhelema, Shawnee Indian Woman Chief
“Much simplified, the message Seton delivered for more than sixty years is that a proper understanding and respect for Nature can provide a type of antidote to many of the difficulties brought on by our modern technological world. And, the spiritual traditions of the First Americans provide us with profound insights into the proper understanding of man's role in the universe. The Gospel of the Redman presents Seton's message, and the message of the American Indians, in its essential form.”
Dee Seton Barber, daughter of E.T. Seton
