This is a fascinating account of a white boy captured and raised by American Indians. He became an Indian and as an adult returned to his original family. I really enjoyed McBride's narration. Would love more books read by him.

A Brief Travalogue

The account was totally bereft of details. What was life like among the various tribes ? What differences were there ? Did he ever compromise himself by attacking white men? He casually mentions the fact that he had a wife and child among the Copperhead towards the end of his narrative and that they were being kept as a surety to his eventual
return, of course he never did or least wise doesn't inform us! All these details would have been fascinating. Provided with a map of early C19th North America I could have done a better job.
