Descripción

In Zeke and Ned, Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana have created an American masterpiece: funny, exuberant, compelling, violent, and tragic.
Set in the Cherokee Nation not Jong after the Civil War, Zeke and Ned is the story of Ezekiel Proctor and Ned Christie, the last Cherokee warriors, living men whose story is not merely legend, but history -- their fates a consequence of the brutal policies which produced the Trail of Tears. As a child, Zeke Proctor walked the Trail of Tears from Georgia to the Indian Territory west of Arkansas, acquiring through that bitter struggle a fierce loyalty to the Cherokee way. Though a family man and a respected member of the Cherokee Senate, Zeke the man is an adventurous charmer, with a family roving eye.
Ned Christie is tall and charismatic, with waist-length hair and a high-cheekboned handsomeness, that appeals to women all over the Going Snake District. But Ned's heart is set on one woman: Jewel Sixkiller Proctor, Zeke's beautiful young daughter. And Ned's long and determined resistance to the relentless pressure of white law unwittingly makes him a hero to the Cherokee people.
Zeke and Ned is a powerful, affecting work dramatizing the long Cherokee struggle against white authority. It is, ultimately, a moving tale about love, honour, loyalty, heroism, and the human condition.

  • (3/5)
    Authors Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana play fast and loose with history here, in this tale of the clash between U.S. law and Cherokee Nation law in the late 1800s.

    Historical characters include Zeke Proctor, Ned Christie, and "the hanging judge" Isaac Parker; real-life incidents include the Goingsnake massacre and Ned Christie's war. Other than that, timelines are mixed, fictional characters ride alongside historical ones, and many of the relationships -- particularly the father-in-law / son-in-law standing of Proctor and Christie -- appear to be made up whole cloth.

    As usual with McMurtry, the book's strength comes in its characterizations and their dialogue, along with oddball vignettes peculiar to the time and place.
  • (4/5)
    This is just good, old fashioned story telling about two real Cherokee warriors and good friends, Ezekiel Proctor and Edward "Ned" Christie (and their families, friends and adversaries), in the years after the Civil War and the Trail of Tears. There is actually quite a bit of history packed into this novel, about the white/Indian courts and judicial systems and how they had an uneasy relationship on how to handle crimes of the day, which were rampant. Overall, it is just an incredibly sad look at the demise of the Cherokee Nation. But as readers, we see the situations from many perspectives and many characters. A very engrossing read and one that was very hard to put down. I have only read McMurtry's "Lonesome Dove" for comparison and I would say they are both great novels, just incredibly different. Highly recommended, especially if you have any interest in Native American history or Ezekiel Procotor/Ned Christie.
