Very interesting piece of history. Too bad you only had 750 words to get it all in — I would love to "hear" more the story. Good job!
I like the way you wrote this character's narration; he wrote as a person fluent in English, but as a second language. And it's a very intriguing story--thanks for the education!
I love the idea of telling the Whitman's story from a native Nez Peirce's perspective. I hope you don't mind if I give you a bit of a critique since you're in Masters. I found that the rapid changes back and forth between simply telling facts, and showing a bit of the MC's thoughts and emotions was confusing. I would love to see the whole thing shown only through dialog and the boy's thoughts--I think it would really draw the reader into a personal connection with the story. That said, I found this interesting, thank you!
Fascinating history lesson! You tell it with such expertise. I also wish you had more words! I'd love to learn more about this man. Loved the perspective as well.
Interesting bit of history that you put over so well. Thanks for sharing.
