    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 Ja

    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 unli

    Better than the movie, maybe, but not by much Whatever you think about the conflict between the Plains Indians and the white man, it s hard to identify with a hero who is really neither red nor white in his loyalty, who consistently takes the low road and whose outlook on life is completely mean spirited and sleazy Now I m no stranger to anti heroes I cheered for Alex in A CL

    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,

    n this book, narrated by a prissy bachelor of independent means, we meet a wonderful character who, Forrestt Gump like, takes us through the development of the American west Jack Crabb s family was ambushed by a tribe of Cheyenne on the way to Utah to meet up with the Mormons His father, a preacher of some originality, was intrigued by the liberality of the doctrine,and felt they

    It took me a long time to read as I slowed down and quit every time I couldn t handle what was going on I don t have any objectivity on this subject, no space between me and the killing, so I read with dread I loved the way the ending was written though, there was so much dignity.Jack Crabb is carried off, sort of, by Indians when he is 7 years old He is adopted by the Cheyenne Ind

    Just re read this for the first time in forty years, when I read it shortly after seeing the movie I had always rated it among my favorite novels and my estimation has not diminished It is like a lost Mark Twain novel, in many respects surpassing most of Twain s own novels other than Huck Finn and Puddn head Wilson It is a major accomplishment and the forerunner to Zelig and Forrest

    Thomas Berger seems to be one of those necessary Americans whose death when it finally happens the man is nearing 90 inevitably diminishes our national life He s cut from the same cloth as Twain and Ambrose Bierce, and bears some stylistic resemblance, perhaps, to Peter De Vries That s my impression anyway My experience of Berger s work is so far limited to his 1971 novel Vital Parts,

    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
