Nathan on the one hand is a peace-loving Quaker who wouldn't hurt a fly; at other times he's the feared Jibbenainosay, a secretive, brutal killer of Indians in the Kentucky wilderness. Being Quaker, Nathan talks with the ever-present "thees" and "thous" in every sentence, which becomes somewhat comical after a while. But when he turns into the Nick of the Woods, he's the brutal slayer of all things Shawnee. His own family was murdered by Indians (thus the transformation), and when he finally avenges those murders, he disappears and is never heard from again. --Bomojaz at Amazon.com

Sheppard Lee, Written By Himself is a work of dark satire from the early years of the American Republic. Published as an autobiography and praised by Edgar Allan Poe, this is the story of a young idler who goes in search of buried treasure and finds instead the power to transfer his soul into other men's bodies. What follows is one increasingly practiced body snatcher's picaresque journey through early American pursuits of happiness, as each new form Sheppard Lee assumes disappoints him anew while making him want more and more. When Lee's metempsychosis draws him into the marriage market, the money market, and the slave market, Bird's fable of American upward mobility takes a more sinister turn. Lee learns that everything in America, even virtue and vice, are interchangeable; everything is an object and has its price
