Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery -
The Captured by Scott Zesch
On New Year's Day 1870 ten-year-old Adolph Korn was kidnapped by Plains Indians. For three years, he thrived on their rough, nomadic existence, becoming a fierce warrior. Never readjusting to white society, he spent his last years in a cave, all but forgotten by his family. That is, until Scott Zesch stumbled over his great-great-great uncle's grave and determined to understand how a timid farm boy could become so "Indianized". Zesch traveled the West, dug through archives, spoke with Comanche elders, and researched 8 other child captives for this "carefully written, well-researched contribution to Western history - the anthropology of the stolen".
