Osceola may not be a name everyone knows, but his influence on the Seminole people was great. During the 1830s, the US government worked to move Native American tribes off their territory to reservations in the West. Osceola fought against the movement of his people from Florida to Oklahoma, resulting in his imprisonment. Readers learn about life as a Native American during a significant part of their history through both Osceola's biography and the historic context. Accessible text introduces an important social studies topic, and relevant images illustrate the time period in detail.
