Down and dirty truth

This tale is a first-person, no frills account by a man who was kidnapped and traded by Indians to several tribes. It is about being torn between two worlds; it's about being torn in two. I loved it. It isn't the kind of story where the author pours his heart out, but you can read between the lines. It might turn some people off, because it shows the situation as it was -- not what some "He Dance With Wolves" fantasy shows.

Very short story - great thing to take along if expecting to wait for an appointment - can read within an hour and half. It's unfortunate the author did not give a detailed account of his time with the Indians or that more background wasn't given about the settlers attitudes toward the Indians at that time and vice versa. Could have been a wealth of knowledge; however, in spite of the brevity of the work, it does give a powerful insight into human nature and the innate desire to be bonded to family.

    Synopsis misleading

    The story is more about how the indians lived not how Mathew "suffered"

    Boring Read

    Save your money. This book would have been a good read if they provided more detail of their experences. It is short but it just drags and it repeats the same personal experiences.
