Two Roads

(1) 4-6 Cal Black enjoys his nomadic life with his WWI-veteran father in Depression-era America. But then his father reveals their Creek heritage and enrolls Cal in an Oklahoma Indian boarding school. Cal, who always believed he was white, confronts this heretofore-unknown part of himself while adjusting to a school designed to "kill the Indian" within him. His first-person narration rings true in this tautly paced, compelling story of family and identity.
