News of the World: A Novel | Paulette Jiles
In the aftermath of the Civil War, an aging itinerant news reader agrees to transport a young captive of the Kiowa back to her people in this exquisitely rendered, morally complex, multilayered novel of historical fiction from the author of Enemy Women that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.In the wake of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels through northern Texas, giving live readings from newspapers to paying audiences hungry for news of the world. An elderly widower who has lived through three wars and fought in two of them, the captain enjoys his rootless, solitary existence.In Wichita Falls, he is offered a $50 gold piece to deliver a young orphan to her relatives in San Antonio. Four years earlier, a band of Kiowa raiders killed Johanna’s parents and sister; sparing the little girl, they raised her as one of their own. Recently rescued by the U.S. army, the ten-year-old has once again been torn away from the only home she knows.Their 400-mile journey south through unsettled territory and unforgiving terrain proves difficult and at times dangerous. Johanna has forgotten the English language, tries to escape at every opportunity, throws away her shoes, and refuses to act “civilized.” Yet as the miles pass, the two lonely survivors tentatively begin to trust each other, forming a bond that marks the difference between life and death in this treacherous land.Arriving in San Antonio, the reunion is neither happy nor welcome. The captain must hand Johanna over to an aunt and uncle she does not remember—strangers who regard her as an unwanted burden. A respectable man, Captain Kidd is faced with a terrible choice: abandon the girl to her fate or become—in the eyes of the law—a kidnapper himself.

Why did I wait so long to read this? It was wonderful! I haven't been so emotionally involved with characters in ages. I might even have teared up some at the end. In the 1870s, Capitan Kidd travels Texas bringing news of the larger world to small towns. He is entrusted with returning a child kidnapped by the Kiowa to her family. Their story is perfectly told.

Zelma I absolutely loved it too. What a gem. 2w

This book was really good. Such a different topic with returning a girl taken by Kiowas back to her family. I want to learn more about such an interesting psychological topic. And I can totally see Tom Hanks playing the captain.

NEWS OF THE WORLD is filled with beautiful, descriptive writing that pulls you in.

I truly enjoyed NEWS OF THE WORLD mainly because of the characters and definitely the warmth and kindness of Captain Kidd.

If you need a quick, enjoyable, heartwarming read, NEWS OF THE WORLD fits the bill along with a history lesson. 4/5

Happy Saturday! Lucas and I tried to go to a library sale, but it was canceled due to weather. It's literally sunny & 75, so we took that as a sign from the book gods that we didn't need more. But we did meet the library's pet lizard. 🦎

We went out to brunch, & then I decided to flip all of our books sideways so we could fit more. That turned into sorting by size, genre, etc.🤦🏻‍♀️

So, now I'm taking a break & I LOVE this book. #BlameItOnLitsy

Just finished this wonderful little gem on a cold, dreary day. Some people have a tendency to romanticize the “Wild West” but I feel like this book touches on the brutality of the time without sensationalizing it for shock value. I had just finished Ron Chernow‘s book Grant when I picked this up. I think I appreciated it even more having just learned so much about Reconstruction. It was a short read, but a good one!

Readergrrl I really enjoyed this novel. I hadn‘t expected to enjoy it as much as I did and it has joined my top 20ish list. 6mo

Such an amazing book. Joanna, 10 years old and former captive of the Kiowa, and Captain Kidd, the cranky 70 year old man who makes his living reading news stories to small town audiences, make quite the incredible and unlikely pair. The 400 mile journey they make from Wichita Falls to San Antonio to return her to her German family of origin is both fascinating and terrifying.

Absolutely loving this book. A 70 year old man, who reads news to crowds for a living, agrees to transport a 10 year old former captive of the Kiowa back to her German family, which entails a dangerous 400 mile journey from Wichita Falls to San Antonio via horse and wagon in 1870. Isn‘t this sign at a printing press office along the route just marvelous?!

I‘m on a Western kick, reading this on the heels of Lonesome Dove. Lonesome Dove was a tough act to follow, yet I just loved this story with two more characters I won‘t soon forget. Captain Kidd is an older gentleman who travels through 1870s Texas reading the news in small towns where such information is scarce. He is tasked with returning Johanna, a young girl captured by the Kiowas, to her relatives outside of San Antonio and adventure ensues.

intothehallofbooks I loved this one too. I just recently bought a copy of Lonesome Dove and I‘m looking forward to reading it in the new year. 8mo
Ncostell @intothehallofbooks I hope you enjoy it! They‘re both set in the same time period and Lonesome Dove has its own set of great characters. 8mo

Proof that we did move from this chair today.

I was a bit verklempt near the end and surprised by how attached I became to these characters. They don‘t speak the same language and say little throughout, yet communicate multitudes.

Current read. Interesting to know that the main character was based on an actual person . I‘ve learned something new from the book already. The fact that so many people in 1870 were either poor readers or couldn‘t read at all, so they paid to have this man and come to read them “ news of the world” from many newspapers available at the time. Fascinating to think back to a time when news was harder to get and people were so eager to hear it.

PacingTheCage I really enjoyed this one. She did a good job fictionalizing real issues from the time. 11mo
AmyG I found that fascinating...the reading of news as “entertainment”. I really enjoyed this book. It would make a wonderful movie. Hope you are well, Kaye. Been thinking of you. 😘 11mo
Kaye @dltpacngthecage Yes, I just started it last night and it‘s very interesting. I like books set out West , and this old guy, the Captain is a great character.
