Adopted into the Cherokee tribe as a teenager, William Holland Thomas (1805-93), known to the Cherokees as Wil Usdi (Little Will), went on to have a distinguished career as lawyer, politician, and soldier. He spent the last decades of his life in a mental hospital, where the pioneering ethnographer James Mooney interviewed him extensively about Cherokee lifeways. The true story of Wil Usdi's life forms the basis for this historical novella, the final published work of fiction by the late award-winning Cherokee author Robert J. Conley.
