On the trail of the Sioux


"The show is the origin of the world." Created in 1883, Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show offered to witness live the last moments of the conquest of the West: in the midst of horsemen, shootings and stagecoach attacks, Indians who had survived the massacres acted out their own misfortunes. The illusion was perfect. Through the force of repetition and the charm of enchantment, the Wild West Show imposed its falsified version of American history on the world.
With a sharp and inventive writing, Eric Vuillard resurrects the characters of this drama and delivers another version of the fable, in the folds of its birth. With the weapons of literature, Sadness of the Earth ties together the threads of two stories, that of the last Indian massacres and that of their staging by the big show, in a striking evocation.
