The Reason behind the Author Charles C. Mann story” Man’s coming of age in the Dawnland”
The purpose of the author in Coming of Age in the Dawnland from 1491 is to inform us readers about how there was a misinterpretation in which many people thought the Indians were barbarians. Also that Europeans and the Indian settlers did not have much differences in contrast they had lots of similarities.

Throughout The Catcher in the Rye, he uses Holden to convey the immature curiosity, painfulness of the process of growing up for a typical teenagers and adolescents’ view on the adult world.

These beings are stereotyped into being called Indians, or Native Americans (as they are shorthand names), but they would rather be identified by their own tribe name.
“I think I was annoyed that no-one had ever told me this kind of thing might happen” (Earls, p.38). What do you do when everything you know is stripped away from you and you are thrown into a new and completely different life?
