In a real-life version of Little Big Man comes the Indian-captive narrative of Herman Lehmann. Captured as a boy in 1870, he lived for nine years among the Apaches and Comanches. Long considered one of the best captivity stories from the period, Lehmann came to love the people and the life. Only through the gentle persuasion of famed Comanche chief, Quanah Parker, was Lehmann convinced to remain with his white family once he was returned to them.

Lehmann saw some of the most dramatic changes in the western United States from a perspective few whites had. He didn't just play the part-he was living as an Indian. His struggle to readjust to white culture is detailed here as well. At the time of this writing, he was married with five children, although he maintained the ties to his Indian friends and family for the rest of his life.

Every memoir of the American West provides us with another view of the movement that changed the country forever.
