Red-Tail's grandfather warned him over and over that he carries a name on his back. He sees him looking at the white women. "Find a good Indian girl," grandfather urges, his voice unconvincing, weak. Red-Tail doesn't believe what he says. Why should he listen to an old man who doesn't even listen to himself? An old man who pretends to be so powerful, not afraid even to doubt the legends of the great grandfathers. But Red-Tail has seen him trembling, near tears, as he looks up at the giant. Crazy old man, he says to himself. What does he know anyway? He never leaves the base of the mountain. He never goes into town. He doesn't know.
