Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
The story of Jack Crabbe, raised by both a white man and a Cheyenne chief. As a Cheyenne, Jack ate dog, had four wives and saw his people butchered by General Custer's soldiers. As a white man, he participated in the slaughter of the buffalo and tangled with Wyatt Earp.

Review:
"A seminal event in the most significant cultural and literary trend of the 1960s... Few creative works of post-Civil War America have had as much of the fibre and blood of national experience in them" ( Nation)

"One of the best novels of the decade and the best novel ever about the American West" ( New York Times)

Review

Book Description: Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Anniversary. 209 x 136 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. The truth is always made up of little particulars which sound ridiculous when repeated. So says Jack Crabb, the 111-year-old narrator of Thomas Berger s 1964 masterpiece of American fiction, Little Big Man. Berger claimed the Western as serious literature with this savage and epic account of one man s extraordinary double life. After surviving the massacre of his pioneer family, ten-year-old Jack is adopted by an Indian chief who nicknames him Little Big Man. As a Cheyenne, he feasts on dog, loves four wives, and sees his people butchered by horse soldiers commanded by General George Armstrong Custer. Later, living as a white man once more, he hunts the buffalo to near-extinction, tangles with Wyatt Earp, cheats Wild Bill Hickok, and fights in the Battle of Little Bighorn alongside Custer himself--a man he d sworn to kill. Hailed by The Nation as a seminal event, Little Big Man is a singular literary achievement that, like its hero, only gets better with age. Praise for Little Big Man An epic such as Mark Twain might have given us. --Henry Miller The very best novel ever about the American West. -- The New York Times Book Review Spellbinding . . . [Crabb] surely must be one of the most delightfully absurd fictional fossils ever unearthed. -- Time Superb . . . Berger s success in capturing the points of view and emotional atmosphere of a vanished era is uncanny. His skill in characterization, his narrative power and his somewhat cynical humor are all outstanding. -- The New York Times. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780385298292
