Summary

Author Notes

Forrest Carter is best known for his autobiographical work, The Education of Little Tree (1976). Carter was orphaned at the age of ten and raised by his grandfather. In the Education of Little Tree, he wrote of his happy childhood in the isolated woods of the Tennesee Hill Country and lovingly recalls his grandfather who gave him a unique education based heavily on his Cherokee heritage. Carter once estimated that he never spent more than six months in a formal educational setting.

Other notable works by Forrest Carter are The Rebel Outlaw, Josey Wales (1973), and Cry Geronimo (1980). The Rebel Outlaw, Josey Wales was purchased by Clint Eastwood, who produced and starred in the movie adaptation of the work in 1976.
