"Surely the darkest years for Native Americans were the three generations from 1877, which marked the end of the wars and the start of confinement on reservations. During those early dark years there were few voices raised in support… Ernest Thompson Seton was a light shining during those dark years…no one spoke to such a broad audience as Seton. A student of the natural world in Canada, he became Naturalist to the Government of Manitoba. He founded the Boy Scouts of America and the Woodcraft League."

"He was a superb storyteller, and he had that wonderful and rare ability to speak about his specialty, primarily the natural world, in language which could be understood by both children and adults, and he also had the ability to sketch and paint, and to illustrate his stories…Seton knew Indian people, and it was his books…which stirred the imagination of those interested in Native Americans."

"It is an honor, therefore, to write these few words to Seton’s, The Gospel of the Redman. May the book never go out of print because its message is changeless."

—Paul Goble from the Foreword
