Green Grass, Running Water is partly a frame story, partly a dark comedy, partly a political commentary on the treatment of Native Americans, partly fantasy, and partly a coming-of-age story. The frame story is made up of Coyote, the narrator, Robinson Crusoe, Hawkeye, and the Lone Ranger. However, these characters bleed into the main story frequently, and chaos ensues.
I loved this book and look forward to reading it again. It is definitely a book that needs to be read multiple times in order to understand what King intended. And since I have only read it the one time, I'll stop here.
