Publisher's Synopsis

Chief Seattle, head of the Suquamish and Duwamish Indians, spoke to the white man in his native tongue about the importance of preserving the earth. His speech, translated here and lushly illustrated by Susan Jeffers, eloquently conveys the message that we must respect the earth and all it has on it. This speech has been the cornerstone for many environmental movements.


"All races - the red, black, yellow and white - were once believers in the beauty of the world. Brother Eagle, Sister Sky brings to mind the possibility of a world that once was paradise."      ~Jewell Praying Wolf James, nephew of Chief Seattle
