News of the World is a stunning novel by Paulette Jiles that draws the reader into a world of cowboys, Indians and one old war hero, Captain Kidd who has been given an arduous task. He must deliver one young girl to her relatives in San Antonio, TX. But there is just one problem. The young girl might look like her German relatives, but she believes she is an Indian. She dresses like one, acts like one, and even fights like one. Captain Kidd must find a way to integrate the young girl, who had lived with Indians for four years, back into Western culture while fighting to keep her safe from dangers such as outlaws and Western Society standards. News of the World proposes questions we must all face: questions of identity, racism and the importance of culture.
