End of the River

By Desmond Hagedorn
AN Indian is born in Brazil, brought up in the isolation of his tribe and, when still a boy, loses his home and his family in an enemy raid. He is thrown by chance into white civilization. Gradually he becomes — at least in appearance — civilized, but actually he remains maladjusted and at the last civilization destroys him. An unusually acute study of primitive simplicities tragically contused by things and systems they cannot understand.
