THE EDUCATION OF LITTLE TREE. Forrest Carter.

THE EDUCATION OF LITTLE TREE.

New York: Delacorte, 1976. First edition. A delightful and endearing story of Little Tree's adoption by his Cherokee grandmother and white grandfather who had 'taken on the Indian ways'. Little Tree is educated in these ways, including respect of the land and its creatures, courage in the face of suffering and the importance of having a secret place to retreat to for solitude and contemplation. Originally promoted as a true story it is now considered to be fictional but, though perhaps less romantically appealing as a result, still stands as an exceptional story. Slight lean to spine, otherwise very good condition in a very good dust jacket. Item #7424

216 pages.
