    Smarter people than I have noted that the Captivity Narrative is America s first indigenous literary genre For what it s worth not much I happen to agree Stories about white men, women, and children taken by the Indians have been told on these shores since long before the United States came into existence Increase and Cotton Mather often took time off from spreading the

    So I, Jack Crabb, was a Cheyenne warrior Had made my kill with bow and arrow Been scalped and healed with hocus pocus Had an ancient savage who couldn t talk English for my Pa, and a fat brown woman for my Ma, and for a brother a fellow whose face I hardly ever saw for clay or paint Lived in a skin tent and ate puppy dog God, it was strange Most of us are familiar with Jack

    Having been captivated by Thomas Berger s use of language, by his imagination, by his sympathetic treatment of Native Americans, specifically the Cheyenne, I finished his marvelous novel, Little Big Man, a page turner that kept me riveted from beginning to end The protagonist is Jack Crabb, age 111, consummate raconteur, the story being told in the first person by this unlike

    I know I m in a big minority here, but I must have missed something in what many people describe as one of our greatest American novels This was a tedious, uninspiring read in many ways LITTLE BIG MAN was a book I had trouble even finishing.

    Sometimes a book is a good friend Not like a good friend An actual friend You open your eyes in the morning and you remember that it is there, your friend, and you know you ll get through This book was a good friend Maybe it was Jack Crabb s the narrator unique, funny, irreverent, wise, one hundred and eleven year old voice that sparked the friendship and kept it going For a few days

    The movie with Dustin Hoffman was very well done follows the book fairly well, but the book captures the character even better He s not a perfect man by any stretch of the imagination He lives a long time through some very interesting history Living with the Indians then scouting for Custer at the Little Big Horn, a fight against the same indians he lived with There s a gritty, real fe

    Original review, based on reading it perhaps 25 years ago An old book well worth hunting down and reading, or re reading If you were to make a list of every trait that makes somebody a human being as opposed to a Human Being, which was one of the sub groups described in this book , it might look something like humor sense of the absurd kindness vanity lack of self awarenessand you could
