I love this book. I loved reading it. I loved sharing it. Everyone I've recommended it to has loved it.
Then I heard things about the author I wished I didn't know. But then I thought, "but, those things don't show through in this book", so the story hasn't changed, only my background knowledge.
I still love the book.
It's not an autobiography, and not everything mentioned in the story is real. Okay. It's still great fun to read.

This book was a huge hit when first published and later when re-issued. It was read by adults and children alike, and is well-loved. It is still relevant and a wonderful story of a young Cherokee boy.

"The Education of Little Tree is (often)presented as the autobiography of the author, but it is a fictional story of a 5-year-old orphan boy named Little Tree who is raised by his full Cherokee Grandma and his half Cherokee Grandpa in their small mountain home during the depression." Amazon review
This is a beautiful story, but take the facts of it with a grain of salt.

In the telling of the story of young Cherokee boy raised and educated in the backwoods by his grandparents, Forrest Carter talkes about living and dying, the place of people in the universe, the role of family and friends in the shaping of life, tragedy, humor, sorrow, bigotry, unselfishness and deep awareness of nature. Some of it is sad, some of it is hilarious, some of it is unbelievable and it is, all and all, charming.

Most enjoyable! The title and cover give very little sign of the richness within.

Mr. Carter offers deep and enriching insights into the thought processes of people choosing to live a more simple life. Not condeming other ways of life, instead showing through his vivid and descriptions the full and pleasureable lives that many of our forefathers led.

I will definately look for more of his writings.
