    Posted December 5, 2000

    A dramatic struggle to survive a different lifestyle.

    Where you live decides the way you live. In Oliver La Farge's novel 'Laughing Boy,' the differences between the Indian land and the white man's town are literally the differences between life and death. They are two separate ways of life, and cannot successfully be combined. <P>Laughing Boy is the ideal Indian, but he falls in love with Slim Girl, a 'school-girl,' and moves to the white man's town. While he is there, he becomes an alcoholic, loses the holy way of life, shoots someone and becomes hunted by the white man. La Farge indirectly draws attention to the fact that if Laughing Boy had stayed on the Indian land, he would still be living the holy life and would not be hunted by any white man. <P>Setting plays a huge part in who each person is. Where we live decides who we are by influence. Laughing Boy is an Indian, and should have stayed with his people, Slim Girl is a school girl and should have stayed with the white man. Had they both stayed where God had put them, neither would have been hurt, or touched by sorrow and death.
