Věřte tomu nebo ne, Jacku Crabbovi je 111 let. Věřte nebo nevěřte, Jack Crabb má dva otce: jednoho bílého a druhého, sice duchovního, zato nefalšovaného indiánského náčelníka kmene Čejenů, který mu také dal to nezapomenutelné jméno - Malý velký muž Malý velký muž Jack Crabb tak zdědil od každého svého předka něco a výsledkem je zábavný vypravěč, který si neláme hlavu s rasovými rozdíly a přepíná podle momentální potřeby mezi bílými a rudými návyky a zvyklostmi.… (mais)
