Weeding Wednesday 4
Weeding! A constant chore. I find it easier if I just do a little bit, day by day, week by week, otherwise you'll get overwhelmed. Here's my pull for the week. First published in 1976 - and hasn't circulated in years and years. If I understand correctly, a kid finds out that it's been determined that the Indians deal to sell Manhattan for $24 dollars worth of beads is ruled not valid. Because of his Indian heritage he's declared the official owner of all of modern Manhattan. I guess you'd have to call this a realistic fiction/fantasy, as this would never happen in real life. Between the kid's crazed expression, the quasi-rainbow behind him, and his feather headress, I have to declare this one so horrible that it's awesome.
