The story I read on the 15th of February was a very unique one. Not that the story was any unique but I guess the way it was written. Sherman Alexie is for sure one of my favourite short story writers and rightly so.
I read the title story called, “The Toughest Indian in the World” and there are various themes running through this story. The story is about American Indians and coping with the modern culture, while trying to remain true to the Indian ways of life.
The story is about the narrator recalling life as it was, till Indians moved to reservations and how the Indian way is slowly disappearing. The story is striking and is mainly about two cultures and identities.
