Little Big Man
A little later in November 1868, Custer and the 7th Cavalry make a surprise attack on the Cheyenne camp at the Washita River. Jack saves the now-blind and elderly Old Lodge Skins, but Sunshine, their child, and her sisters are killed. Jack tries to infiltrate Custer's camp to exact revenge, but loses his nerve to kill Custer.

Remembering this brown man take in the movie and the new narrative of Indian, I prickle with an ache. It makes me consider the power of stories, how the ones that get dragged out over and over again leave so little room for the counter narrative, one where a father can be both violent and peaceful or kind and caustic. Or for a young girl to be approached about her father with curiosity and not judgment.
Journey to the dusty little Texas town of Lonesome Dove and meet an unforgettable assortment of heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers. Richly authentic, beautifully written, always dramatic, Lonesome Dove will make listeners laugh, weep, dream, and remember.
The Return seems so plausible and authentic that if I had to pit Crabb against a historian, I would put my money on Crabb. And yet, as I keep trying to remind myself, the little fellow is a fictional character. I wonder if you ever worry about displacing history with fiction and whether you have ever been tempted to write history in straight, nonfictionalized fashion.
Near Mint. Like new with only the slightest wear, many times indistinguishable from a Mint item. Close to perfect, very collectible. Board & war games in this condition will show very little to no wear and are considered to be punched unless the condition note says unpunched.
From Chiozza's baseball, in fact, came basketball. The players on his youth baseball team were all close friends and wanted to play basketball together. So Chiozza's father agreed to coach them in a league. "They figured out real quick that once we got the ball, all they had to do was take off for the other end of the court and Chris would find them somewhere," his father said. "It was that easy. They had to outrun the other team to keep up with Chris." Away he went. Chiozza was undersized, but made up for his quickness and toughness. The latter was must-have trait to excel on the playgrounds and in the gyms of Memphis. He daydreamed of being local University of Memphis icon Derrick Rose (OK, so a smaller version) and in time, joined Team Thad, the area's top AAU squad (run by former Georgia Tech and NBA player Thaddeus Young, also out of Memphis), with a roster stacked with six future Division-I players, including Illinois' Leron Black and Davell Roby of St. Louis. Chiozza's high school team, White Station, was a fixture in the state's top 10. On the court with so many great players, Chiozza not only got good at playing the game, he got really good at thinking it. His father recalls many a time his son was thinking (and seeing) one, two, even three passes ahead of a play. "I can remember games back when he was in the ninth or 10th grade playing on the varsity -- a little thing out there against a bunch of big guys -- and they'd think they had him trapped on the floor with nowhere to go," elder Chris said. "And then the last place you'd expect a guy to be open or that he could possibly see, he'd zip the ball to a guy cutting to the basket." Sounds familiar.
His father Keith remembered the day when little Ma'Khail, whom he's nicknamed "Mooch" after former Auburn and NBA guard Moochie Norris, was at Baton Rouge's Independence Park half-watching one of his brothers play a T-ball game. 041b061a72
