Summary

''This novel is the hilarious and tragic portrait of an orphaned Indian boy who travels back and forth through time in a charged search for his true identity. Flight follows this troubled foster teenager - a boy who is not a ''legal'' Indian because he was never claimed by his father - as he learns that violence is not the answer.'' ''The journey of Flight's young hero begins as he's about to commit a massive act of violence. At the moment of decision, he finds himself shot back through time to resurface in the body of an FBI agent during the civil rights era. Red River is only the first stop in an eye-opening trip through moments in American history. He will continue traveling back to inhabit the body of an Indian child during the battle at Little Bighorn and then ride with an Indian tracker in the nineenth century before materializing as an airline pilot jetting through the skies today. During these furious travels through time, his refrain grows: ''Who's to judge?'' and ''I don't understand humans.'' When finally, blessedly, our young warrior comes to rest again in his own life, he is mightily transformed by all he's seen.''--BOOK JACKET.
