1. The first story takes us all back to School days and a local bully. I never had any one bully me.Probably my school was too homogenous. But bully can ,appear at any time of life. Thank God I had read enough that I was able to bully right back. Not everyone is lucky enough to have big man in his corner, but this kid did. In my life readings, I found my strong man...May you have one Or the other.
2. I n the second story, a teacher was the strong man. Would it were that all teachers were so wise. I found mine in fiftgh grade. I hope you too had at least one!
3. I got the 3rd story twice. But my Kindle is new so it may be me. A sort of, history lesson in Indians. Being an Arizona child, I have had the very rare experience of working with people from all . three tribes. ...and with the white man too. I found a. yes, a basic distrust among the tribes but a common distrust of the white man...I wonder how the white man would have adjusted to being on reservations?! My experience is that no matter the color, each man is a book. Though, we all come with a binding of a given color, there are strong men, bullies, good men, the smart er and dumber in each group.
4. As for kids who are ripped from their homes to attend school,
this continues. None the less , Native Americans are much more
attuned to nature and it's courses. I don't think that being a white man is really their goal.
I really liked the poem on knees. I need a new one!!!
5. I liked the sheep herder OK, but guessed the black bag,s contents from the get go. The prose was still beautiful though.
6. I laughed out loud at the prize winner in the final story. The drunk was perfect. His memories fluttered by in his aching brain then evaporated like carbonated bubbles in a half flat bottle of pop. How he was able to look then eat are beyond me. The steering wheel scene is more true to course. As in the other stories the protagonist is redeemed.
I liked all the poems but am not much of a critic.
Hope I got to all stories. This is my first Kindle try.
My favorite poem, and several shared the quality of being easily read and deeply thought-provoking, was "There Ain't No Trail." It is a blend of philosophy and style that should please many readers - it certainly did me.
