By John G. Neihardt

“[Eagle Voice Remembers] is John Neihardt’s mature and reflective interpretation of the outdated Sioux lifestyle. He served as a translator of the Sioux prior, whose viewers has proved to not be constrained by way of house or time. via his writings, Black Elk, Eagle Elk, and different outdated males who have been of that final iteration of Sioux to have participated within the previous buffalo-hunting lifestyles and the disorienting interval of strife with the U.S. military stumbled on a literary voice. What they acknowledged chronicles a dramatic transition within the lifetime of the Plains Indians; the checklist in their techniques, interpreted via Neihardt, is a legacy preserved for the long run. It transcends the specifics of this one tragic case of cultural false impression and clash and speaks to common human issues. it's a tale worthy considering either for itself and for the teachings it teaches all humanity.”—Raymond J. DeMallie
In her foreword to Eagle Voice Remembers, Coralie Hughes discusses Neihardt’s goal that this ebook, previously titled When the Tree Flowered, be understood as a prequel to his vintage Black Elk Speaks.
