Description :


'I am a white man and never forget it, but I was brought up by the Cheyenne Indians from the age of ten.' So starts the story of Jack Crabb, the 111-year old narrator of Thomas Berger's masterpiece of American fiction. As a "human being", as the Cheyenne called their own, he won the name Little Big Man. He dressed in skins, feasted on dog, loved four wives and saw his people butchered by the horse soldiers of General Custer, the man he had sworn to kill. As a white man, Crabb hunted buffalo, tangled with Wyatt Earp, cheated Wild Bill Hickok and survived the Battle of Little Bighorn. Part-farcical, part-historical, the picaresque adventures of this witty, wily mythomaniac claimed the Wild West as the stuff of serious literature.

Moving to a new state means more than a new house for nine-year-old Katie and her family. There are new friends, a new neighborhood, and fun things to do. It also means new challenges for Katie-she's a "little big sister" to her older brother, Mikey, who has autism. And while most of her new friends are understanding, some people-even grown-ups-just don't "get it" about autism. Katie and her friends, both old and new, are ready to spread the word and make a difference in Katie's new community. This is book 2 in the Little Big Sister series.

Description :


"Since 1926, when this narrative of the Seventh Cavalry's defeat at the hands of the followers of Sitting Bull was first offered to the public, much has been written on the subject, by numerous authors of varying ability. The story of Custer's last fight -- the story of the Little Big Horn -- and the mystery that still enshrouds Custer's fate, continue to fascinate the student of our Indian wars. It is a subject that strangely evokes the interest of each succeeding generation, despite the fact that two-thirds of a century has now elapsed since the Yellow Hair and his cohorts passed into history. Little that is new, and nothing of any moment has been discovered since 1926; and as the years pass, it becomes increasingly unlikely that anything of importance will be discovered. For that reason, and because nearly all those who participated in the fight, officers, soldiers and Indians alike, have now crossed the great divide, the author has found necessary only minor changes in the text, changes that affect the narrative and the substance not at all. Both remain precisely as originally written. The book has received both praise and criticism, as was to be expected. On the whole, however, it has stood the test of the years, and is again offered as the author's earnest and unbiased effort to present an accurate word-picture of the greatest of all combats between the American soldier and the American Indian"--Preface.
