The last running : a story by John Graves( Book )
5 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two old-timers lock horns in this lean, affecting short story set in 1923 and permeated with nostalgia for the Old West. One is gruff, tobacco-chewing Tom Bird, a Texas rancher; the other a sullen Comanche ex-war-chief named Starlight. Years earlier, they squared off in near-fatal combat. Years later on a stopover from Oklahoma, Starlight and his party of eight Comanche men demand that Bird donate his largest bull, Shakespeare, for a sacrifice. What is unspoken between the two protagonists--mutual respect, a nascent fraternal bond--is at least as important as what is made explicit

David Wilson is called "Pudd'nhead" by the townspeople, who fail to understand his combination of wisdom and eccentricity.

Roxy, mother of the mulatto, is given charge of the children; in fear that her son will be sold, she exchanges the babies. The mulatto, though he grows up as a white boy, turns out to be a scoundrel. He sells his mother and murders and robs his uncle. He accuses Luigi, one of a pair of twins, of the murder. Pudd'nhead, a lawyer, undertakes Luigi's defense. On the basis of fingerprint evidence, he exposes the real murderer, and the white boy takes his rightful place
