“[Eagle Voice Remembers] is John Neihardt’s mature and reflective interpretation of the outdated Sioux lifestyle.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 means of area or time. via his writings, Black Elk, Eagle Elk, and different previous males who have been of that final iteration of Sioux to have participated within the previous buffalo-hunting existence and the disorienting interval of strife with the U.S. military stumbled on a literary voice. What they stated chronicles a dramatic transition within the lifetime of the Plains Indians; the list in their techniques, interpreted by way of 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 matters. 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 purpose that this publication, previously titled When the Tree Flowered, be understood as a prequel to his vintage Black Elk Speaks.

It was going to be a hot day. There was no wind, no cloud. I can hear men singing low as they ride away, and dogs barking. It is still again, and the star is waiting. It makes me a little afraid the way it looks and waits and is so still; but I am glad too and I want to sing. “Then the star is gone and the sun is big and hot. “Many of the women began going to a ridge where they could see what would happen, and where they would be close enough to take care of the horses for their men. Many of the older men went with them.

There was strangeness everywhere so that maybe something wonderful was going to happen. I remember, before I had sharp arrows for my bow, the way I would be in a valley all alone, and there would be no sound, and all at once the hills would be wrinkled grandfathers looking down at me and saying something good that I could almost hear. “When we were camped near the soldiers’ town on Duck River that time, I heard the old people talking about the iron road the Wasichus were making all along Shell River [Platte].

Halfway up the ridge they are dead. . They are huddled together fighting at the top with the dead around them—and they are dying. A great cry goes up and they are covered with warriors swarming in. ” The old man strove to light his pipe, his bony hands trembling as with palsy. I steadied the bowl and held a lighted match to it. “Thank you, Grandson,” he said, in a voice gone thin and quavering on a sudden. For some time he sat studying the ground through the slowly emitted smoke. Then, handing the pipe to me, he continued.
