La magica storia di un piccolo indiano( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in Multiple languages and English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

USA, 1935: rimasto orfano di padre e di madre in un sobborgo minerario, Piccolo Albero viene accolto dai nonni paterni, lui bianco e lei indiana, e portato sulle montagne. Comincia così una vera e propria educazione alla scoperta delle proprie origini cherokee, a contatto diretto con la natura e con le storie degli antenati raccontate dalla presenza magica di Salice John, memoria storica di una gloriosa stirpe in via di estinzione. La sua vita trascorre tra l'apprendimento della filosofia indiana, le lezioni di distillazione illegale del whisky impartite dal nonno contrabbandiere, e la scoperta del mondo e degli esseri umani che lo popolano. Il piccolo villaggio della valle si trasforma in un microcosmo in cui Piccolo Albero impara a riconoscere le persone buone da quelle disoneste, e ad apprezzare la sincerità dei gesti in contrasto con la falsità delle parole. L'idillio viene spezzato dagli assistenti sociali che impongono al bambino di lasciare i nonni e frequentare un collegio a mericano. Nella nuova scuola gli insegnanti fanno di tutto per estirpare ogni accenno di cultura indiana da Piccolo Albero, partendo proprio dall'assegnargli un nuovo nome americano: Joshua. Le timide reazioni del bambino vengono stroncate in maniera violenta, fino alla reclusione in una sorta di cella di isolamento. Da lì Piccolo Albero comunica ai nonni tutto il suo disagio affidando i suoi pensieri alla prima stella della sera. Qualche girono più tardi il nonno giunge al collegio e, di nascosto, riporta Piccolo Albero sulle montagne. La morte di poco successiva prima del nonno e poi della nonna affidano l'educazione di Piccolo Albero a Salice John: i due si allontanano felici verso le montagne
