It would be helpful to know the printing history of this tale, which is usually not available on Kindle purchases. The plus is the descriptions of the various tribes, and the writer's fear at being "captured" back by white people, and his eventual reconnection with family members. The minus is the lack of detail of daily life as a Native American, and no note of what happens to his Native American wife and children once he leaves them and "becomes white" again. A strong accompanying narrative by an accomplished historian is needed to make this book work.
