Författare: Edward Bunker.

Alex Hammond è un ragazzo in gamba, intelligente e indipendente, ma soggetto a violenti accessi di rabbia. In lui – cresciuto dentro i confini di un mondo che gli ha procurato solo sofferenza e dolore – frustrazione e collera sono del tutto naturali, ma non per questo meno pericolose. Ribelle fin dal divorzio dei genitori, Alex evade in continuazione da case di accoglienza e collegi, mosso dal desiderio di andare a vivere a tutti i costi col padre, un uomo a pezzi incapace di offrire al figlio il focolare di cui ha disperatamente bisogno. Mentre Alex è sballottato tra assistenti sociali ben intenzionati, ma sconcertati dal suo comportamento, e figure autoritarie perfide e crudeli, le sue emozioni e il suo agire sbandano senza posa tra queste due influenze disparate. Resta una sola e unica costante: le cattive compagnie, i suoi amici buoni a nulla e ormai votati al crimine, tutti sempre disponibilissimi a instillare idee e propositi ai margini della legalità, o apertamente illegali, nella mente brillante e ancora acerba di Alex, peraltro già avviato sulla strada della devianza e del comportamento antisociale. In una progressione narrativa avvincente e angosciante insieme, “Little boy blue” ritrae a tinte forti questa distruzione, intrappolando il lettore tra le macerie di un’infanzia andata in rovina.

Carter was planning a sequel titled The Wanderings of Little Tree at the time of his death in 1979. A film adaptation was released in 1997. The book has been the subject of a number of scholarly articles, many focusing on the hoax and on the impact of the author’s white supremacist background on the work. The fictional memoirs of Forrest “Little Tree” Carter begin in the late 1920s when, as the protagonist, his parents die and he is given over into the care of his part-Cherokee grandfather and his Cherokee grandmother at the age of five years. The book was originally to be called Me and Grandpa, according to the book’s introduction. The boy’s Cherokee “Granpa” and Cherokee “Granma” call him “Little Tree” and teach him about nature, farming, whiskey making, mountain life, society, love, and spirit by a combination of gentle guidance and encouragement of independent experience.

The story takes place during the fifth to tenth years of the boy’s life, as he comes to know his new home in a remote mountain hollow. Granpa runs a small moonshine operation during Prohibition. The grandparents and visitors to the hollow expose Little Tree to supposed Cherokee ways and “mountain people” values. The state eventually forces Little Tree into a residential school, where he stays for a few months.

At the school, Little Tree suffers from the prejudice and ignorance of the school’s caretakers toward Indians and the natural world. A year or so later, Willow John takes sick, sings the passing song, and then dies. Two years after that, Granpa dies from complications of a fall, telling the boy “It was good, Little Tree. Next time, it will be better.
