A bestselling, up-to-date evaluation of a legendary Indian leader. Named Outstanding Book by the Gustavus Myers Center for the  Study of Human Rights. "Osceola's Legacy is significant for its geneology and archaeological study of this Native American and his interaction with the federal government during the 1800s. The catalog of photographs of Osceola portraits and his personal possessions makes this a worthwhile reference book as well." --Georgia Historical Quarterly


Patricia Riles Wickman is a former senior historian for the State of Florida, Director of the Department of Anthropology & Genealogy for the Seminole Tribe of Florida, and author of The Tree that Bends: Discourse, Power, and the Survival of the Maskoki People.

"This is a fresh look at a fascinating figure who led the resistance to the removal of Florida Indians in the early 1800s. Though generally thought to be Seminole, Osceola actually was of mixed English and Creek blood."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Wickman does a thorough job of answering many questions surrounding the life and death of a remarkable man."--Tampa Tribune


"Through the newly discovered diary of the surgeon who attended Osceola on his death bed and the innovative use of cultural artifacts and graphic images, this investigation explodes the myth of Osceola and introduces the man in both a historical and an anthropological context."--Book Alert


"Osceola's Legacy is significant for its geneology and archaeological study of this Native American and his interaction with the federal government during the 1800s. The catalog of photographs of Osceola portraits and his personal possessions makes this a worthwhile reference book as well." --Georgia Historical Quarterly
