This book is a problematic example of a white man playing Indian in order to sell a narrative. The author is actually Asa Carter who was speechwriter to George Wallace of "Segregation Forever!" fame. Regardless of literary merit it is damaging to to natives. For those interested, here is a post by scholar of children's literature, Debbie Reese: https://americanindiansinchildrensliterature.blogspot.com/2007/11/where-is-your-copy-of-education-of.html

Fact or Fiction, Nevermind: This is a great book. I am thinking about it weeks after finishing it. You'd never know by the childish cover that it's an intriguing and captivating book. I wish to find more books by this author. There is much folklore and herbal remedies although I would research the ideas more but some survival plants I can attest to being true. I am going to read this book again one day; really a great book.

The reader should be aware that this book is a hoax; not a memoir but fiction. Here is the link to one of many articles that can be found on the internet concerning the author: http://www.nytimes.com/1991/10/04/us/best-seller-is-a-fake-professor-asserts.html

"I felt total bad about it, and empty. Granpa said he knew how I felt, for he was feeling the same way. But Granpa said everything you lost which you had loved give you that feeling. He said the only way round it was not to love anything, which was worse because you would feel empty all the time (78)."

"It made you feel like this was the last summer; that you had already left it and wanted it back, and here you was all the time. You wisht he hadn't started playing [the fiddle], for you ached--and then you hoped he wouldn't stop. It was lonesome (146)."
