The Light In The Forest Conrad Richter's book, The Light In The Forest, is about a boy from Pennsylvania who was adopted into an Indian family. After a long period of time, True Son had to go back to his white family. The ordeal in the story is that he wanted to go back to the Indians and not stay in the white village. When he came back, he made a big mistake and got kicked out of the Indian village.

Yet Sitting Bull was a proud chief and did not want to live on a reservation. When Sitting Bull came to Standing Rock he took pride in “being the last chief to give up his rifle.” Although this may have comforted him, there probably was not much reassurance of his power on the reservation.

He stayed true to the roots he knew as much as he could.
There is a strong contrast in character in “The Leader of the People.” Carl is the reality that is trying to bring Grandfather back down to earth to see clearly. Carl is thinking about the future and not dreaming of the past. Grandfather on the other hand still wishes he was with the Indians and was leading the people across the plains, as he tells in his stories. He does not want to give up on that until he hears Carl talk about him behind his back. This seems to bring him into reality once he realizes that no one cares about his adventures anymore.
