The Life of Osceola
Osceloa — born Billy Powell — was the son of an English trader and a Creek woman. Although not Seminole by birth, he was adopted into their tribe as a child when he and his mother moved to Florida to escape the fighting of the Creek Wars. As an adult, Osceola (his Seminole name) fought to help his people keep control of their ancestral homeland. Vivid photographs augment the age-appropriate text to bring the story of this Native American hero to life for young readers.
