Summary
"Scalping Columbus" is a collection of short stories that are in part autobiographical and in part fictional. Narrated in a style reminiscent of Indian oral tradition, Fortunate Eagle employs humor and satire to entertain and challenge society. The stories range from author's experiences as an activist in the Bay Area to his encounter with the Pope in Rome and back to his childhood. Most of the stories are short and easy to read"--
