Summary

"My father was fifty years old when I was born. His friends, of his age and older, could therefore be two generations ahead of mine. "At night, when I was supposed to be in bed asleep, I'd be on the floor with my ear over the grille of the air register, listening to the talk between my father and his friends. My father was an Indian doctor,' so many of his friends, even from other reservations, would be talking 'Medicine talk.' Today we might describe that kind of talk as 'extrasensory perception (ESP) oriented.'
