"Out of intimate knowledge of the Florida Indian country, and careful research, Rubylea Hall has realized the exciting story of the boyhood of the great Indian leader Assi Yohola - whom history knows as Osceola, chief of the Florida Indian during the Seminole Wars of the last century.
Until his eleventh year, the boy has been known as Jon Powell, living in Georgia with his Indian mother, Sally Marie, and a white trader. Then, when the white man leaves, Sally Marie decides to head south to Florida and rejoin her tribe. And she tells her son that he is really a full-blooded Indian, son of a brave warrior killed in battle, grandson of a famous chief Ta-lah Assi……."
