    Story
    "Simple But Authentic and Enriching"
    Would you try another book from Charles Eastman and/or Jim Killavey?

    Maybe. This book is a bit hard to classify as it certainly has its charm but also a flatness both in the writing and in the delivery. Yet it has a ring of authenticity in relating the Plains Indian lifestyle that was informative and evoked respect for the heritage of a culture that is all but gone.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    This is a nonfiction biography ending at the age of fifteen.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The odd flatness of the narration was perhaps forced by the nature of the writing. It has an awkwardness reminiscent of a translation, but in this case it is primarily a cultural translation rather than linguistic.


    Was Indian Boyhood worth the listening time?

    Yes, definitely. It might even be interesting for both a parent and child to undertake together.
