how does the writer effectively capture the readers interrest in the prologue?

The author immediately whets our curiosity with David's memories and the fact that there are things that continue to affect him years after he fact. As a boy, David is surrounded by danger and fear. His father weeps, his mother wields a gun, and a Sioux woman by the name of Marie Little Soldier catches our interest and imagination. The setting, the characters..... each of these create interest and provide a backdrop to a story we soon find ourselves wanting to know..... we want to know more. Thus, our interest is piqued, and the desire to know more keeps us reading.
