Dr. Charles Alexander Eastman (Sioux: Ohiyesa) (1858-1939) was a Native American author, a physician and a reformer. He was active in politics and helped in founding the Boy Scouts of America. Between 1894-97, Eastman established 32 Indian groups of the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA). In 1899, he helped recruit students for the Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania. He served as a lobbyist for the Dakota between 1894 and 1897. He was also a member of the Committee of One Hundred, a reform panel examining federal institutions and activities dealing with Indian nations. He was the recipient of the first Indian Achievement Award in 1933. Eastman published the autobiographical Indian Boyhood in 1902, recounting his first fifteen years of life among the Sioux during the waning years of the nineteenth century. Amongst his other works are: The Soul of the Indian (1911) and From the Deep Woods to Civilization (1916).

The stories in Old Indian Days focus mainly on Sioux bands of the Upper Midwest in prereservation times, when contact with whites was minimal. Charles A. Eastman, a mixed-blood Sioux who earned renown as the author of nearly a dozen books, was on home ground in writing about the traditional life of his people, their customs, warm family relations, reverence for animals, and struggle for survival. Originally published in 1907, Old Indian Days alludes to historical figures like Little Crow and Tamahay and to an event that Eastman experienced as a small boy, the 1862 Sioux Uprising in Minnesota. ø The excitement of intertribal warfare and the warrior's lone exploits, as well as his more tender side in trying to fathom the mysteries of womanhood and the eternal are seen in "The Love of Antelope," "The Madness of Bald Eagle." "The Singing Spirit," and other stories. Women enter into these evocations of Indian life most memorably. In "The Peace-Maker" a Sioux woman takes a valiant stand against the consumption of whiskey. Other heroines, including Blue Sky and She-Who-Has-a-Soul, are instrumental in bringing peace between tribes and between races. "Winona, the Woman-Child" and "Winona, the Child-Woman" are among those stories revealing the everyday life of the Indian woman, her rearing and education and influence. ø In her introduction to this Bison Book edition, A. LaVonne Brown Ruoff, a professor of English at the University of Illinois at Chicago, examines the extent to which the stories are original creations and reinterpretations of existing oral accounts.

"This revised and updated edition combines the most important writings of Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa), who was the first American Indian medical doctor (the physician at Wounded Knee) as well as the co-founder of the Boy Scouts of America. Born in 1858, his writings are unique because he was the only great American Indian author who was actually raised to young adulthood in the traditional nomadic life of the pre-reservation era. At the 1933 World's Fair, he was presented with a special medal honoring the most distinguished achievements by an American Indian."--BOOK JACKET.
