REVIEW I've always been fascinated by Indian culture. Perhaps it was a result of my grandfather's stories about his grandmother (full-blooded Cherokee), or maybe it was because I always wanted a little Paint war horse when I was growing up. The sad thing is, I grew up on a glamorized, TV version of Indian lore. My childhood stories never once mentioned the homeless Indians that populate the streets of Seattle and the pages of Sherman Alexie's Indian Killer . An Indian serial killer is terrorizing Seattle, hunting and scalping white men and kidnapping small children. As a result, a complex group of people are thrown together as the city attempts to understand and stop the Indian Killer. John Smith, a full-blooded Indian, was adopted at birth and raised by a wealthy white family. As the rest of Seattle wages a war against the Indian Killer, John wages his own private war, constantly reinventing scenes of his birth and struggling to understand his Indian heritage. Marie is a young Indian activist who shuns her family on the reservation

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
