To keep peace in the family, the parson agrees to talk with the boy. After True Son joins the trio in Myra’s room, he dismays his mother and the parson by sitting on the floor and refusing hospitality. He concludes that the parson wants him to undergo Christian baptism. The parson admits that he seeks to improve the boy’s behavior, to which True Son replies that his behavior is morally ethical by Indian standards: He honors Cuyloga and Quaquenga and doesn’t swear. The parson admits that white people are often less than moral.
The outsider, the outlaw or outcast, a standard figure of Western lore. True Son represents the social pariah. His inability to fit into the Indian way of life or the Paxton way of life at the end of the book places him on the outskirts of both groups. Because of his divided loyalties, he is neither Lenni Lenape brave nor patriotic son of the Butler family. His shaky position is common to the shifting values and lifestyles of the frontier, as depicted in the prairie lore of Willa Cather’s My Ántonia and such Western classics as Zane Grey’s Riders of the Purple Sage, Dorothy Johnson’s “A Man Called Horse,” Mariano Azuela’s The Underdogs, and Jack Schaefer’s Shane.
To round out his life, he would probably prefer a native wife, whom he could secure through trade with a willing family or by chance encounter with a homeless or tribeless woman who shares his predicament, perhaps after disease or siege has destroyed her village. As the number of footloose or unaffiliated people increased in frontier Pennsylvania, such alliances preceded makeshift or on-the-spot marriages, as demonstrated in Janice Holt Giles’ novel Hannah Fowler (1956), the story of Hannah Moore, a stranded young settler who selects a husband at random at Fort Pitt after the unexpected death of her father.
