Overview

Believe it or not, Jack Crabb is 111 years old. He is also the son of two fathers, one white, the other a Cheyenne Indian chief who gave him the name Little Big Man.As a Cheyenne, Crabb feasted on dog, loved four wives, and saw his people butchered by horse-soldiers commanded by Custer. As a white man, he helped hunt the buffalo into extinction, tangled with Wyatt Earp, cheated Wild Bill Hickok--and lived through the showdown that followed. He also survivied the Battle of Little Bighorn, where he fought side by side with Custer himself--even though he'd sworn to kill him.The basis of a popular film, LITTLE BIG MAN, was hailed by The Nation as a seminal event... the most significant cultural and literary trend of the 1960's .

An epic such as Mark Twain might have given us. Henry Miller The very best novel ever about the American West. The New York Times Book Review Spellbinding . . . [Crabb] surely must be one of the most delightfully absurd fictional fossils ever unearthed. Time Superb . . . Berger s success in capturing the points of view and emotional atmosphere of a vanished era is uncanny. His skill in characterization, his narrative power and his somewhat cynical humor are all outstanding. The New York Times
