Publisher's Summary

In 1964, Little Big Man gave us the reminiscences of Jack Crabb - a white orphan raised among the Cheyenne - who returns to "civilized" society, where (among other things) he tangles with Wyatt Earp and Wild Bill Hickok, and ends up as the only white survivor of Custer's Last Stand. At the end of Little Big Man, Jack's supposed death at age 111 cut short his tale. A newly discovered manuscript, however, reveals that Jack had faked his death to get out of his publishing contract, and he now picks up the story of his extraordinarily action-packed life.

Sequel not up to snuff

What did you like best about The Return of Little Big Man? What did you like least?

The original Little Big Man was terrific fun. This one is, by comparison, a bit tedious and directionless, and the main character seems rather depressed. I recommend you listen to the first volume, if you have not already, but skip this.

Inspiring, period.

I've loved this story my whole life. The narrator IS Jack Crabb. I'm sorry the journey is over.....until next time!

A classic masterpiece

A fantastic story touching on some pivotal western history which was well read and hard to put down.

I loved every word.

Great story, great narrator, great everything. Loved the first one and this was just as good! Read the first book first though.

Jack Crabb rides again

Having read the first book of this set ( Little Big Man), I was glad to see part 2. I think you could listen to this without listening to the other , but why miss out on the fun ?
I think this would be especially good for those that like Westerns or learning a bit about some of the famous people from those days. This being fictional, I'm not sure how closely it would follow the facts, but it's a rip-roaring good read, all the same.
I tend to like books with old curmudgeons in them so this does not disappoint. Jack Crabb had a story to tell and he didnt complete it in book one.
A bonus to this is the narrator, Scott Sowers. Perfect voice for this crotchety old cowboy.

Wonderful

Scott Sowers iis excellent. He takes a very good story and makes it better. He was able to capture the essence of the characters in there different voices.I would recommend the story is that he narrates just because he is the narrator. I enjoyed little big man in the return of a little big man immensely. Thomas Berger is an excellent storyteller! Scott Sowers Is unsurpassed. Highly recommended!

I loved this book

I'm going to miss Jack with the end of this book. I read Little Big Man in the 70s as part of a college class, Literature of the American West. it was my favorite book of those we read for the class. Then I found Return of Little Big Man. I purchased this book and Little Big Man and listened to it first, then the sequel. The narration adds so much to the books. Scott Sowers sounds like a 100+ year old man.

A pale shadow of “Little big man”.

“Little Big Man” is an undoubted American classic. This sequel falls very flat, sadly. 4
