Indian Child Life

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: December 2016

Duration: 2 hours 43 minutes


The author was raised as an American Indian and describes what it was like to be an Indian boy (the first 7 chapters) and an Indian Girl (the last 7 chapters). This is very different from the slanted way the white man tried to picture them as 'savages' and 'brutes.'Quote: Dear Children:—You will like to know that the man who wrote these true stories is himself one of the people he describes so pleasantly and so lovingly for you. He hopes that when you have finished this book, the Indians will seem to you very real and very friendly. He is not willing that all your knowledge of the race that formerly possessed this continent should come from the lips of strangers and enemies, or that you should think of them as blood-thirsty and treacherous, as savage and unclean. (Summary by author's preface)

    This was my first experience with Libravox recordings. All done by volunteers, Therefore their voices are not professional, yet they were still good first I did not like it. However once I continued listening it worked and I enjoyed the book. The stories are well worth listening too, they are both educational and entertaining. I will listen to more of both Libravox recordings and the authors stories. I do wish one voice continued throughout the book rather than changing every few chapters.
