I actually didnt buy this book from here originally. I am buying it again though, not only to own the 25th anniversary version, but also to own a copy that isnt worn. I have read this book a dozen or more times, lent it to friends to let read, and talked about it for years. Everytime I read this book I find something new in it. Something I didnt laugh at, something I didnt learn, or something I never felt. I was an English major in college, and have read a lot of books, both for academics and for pleasure. This remains my favorite by far. Only an open-minded and full-hearted person should read this, though. Otherwise, the lessons are gone to waste.

This book shows the discrimination that native americans face in the 30's. It lets you see the way the cherokees live and their beliefs. You can understand how they bond and care for each other. This is true and deep. Now that I told you the good stuff. I have to tell you that some parts are interesting while others, well, not so much. I might like it when im older but not that much now. But none the less i like the emotion behind it.

    Little Tree

    The Education of Little Tree by Forrest Carter ¿Ma lasted a year after Pa was gone. That¿s how I came to live with Granpa and Granma when I was five years old.¿ The Education of Little Tree is a story of a little boy named Little Tree, who loses both his mother and father in less than a year. As a result, after the funeral, he is sent to live with his grandparents. Little Tree¿s grandparents are Cherokee Indians. His Granpa is full blooded and his Grandma is half blooded. Little Tree is faced with a big choice that will effect the rest of his life. His grandparents want him to begin to live the Cherokee life. They want him to take traditions, life-styles, and a lot of other things that pertain to the Cherokee life. Little Tree is not ecstatic about embracing this life-style and is faced with the decision of choosing between a migrant, nomadic life, or one found in a stable, normal society. Sometimes, choices that we make will have a short-term effect. At other times, they will stay with us for a lifetime. The Education of Little Tree is a perfect example. I think that the goal of this book is to awaken the minds of the audience to the fact that some decisions can haunt us for life. I have had some choices that have been very important. The difference between my decisions and Little Tree¿s is that I did not know that it would change my life. The Education of Little Tree was very interesting and had a very unique plot. This book is good for only those with an open mind and respect for life. The Education of Little Tree is one great work of Forrest Carter and I enjoyed it a lot.

    School assignment

    At first a read this book because it was a school assignment and like someother readers I felt bord about the whole thing.The detail Forrest put in this book is remarkable. At the last chapters I just felt like 'Okay I am almost done!' but then when his Grandparents died I felt so bad for calling this book boring.It's really a good read and I hope when I am older I will truthfully say I enjoyed this book-which is right.

    Changed Mind

    I read this book about a year ago! I wrote a review before and only rated it with two stars! As a high school student, being forced to read a book, I didn't enjoy reading this book. After reading reviews and thinking for almost a year about this book, it was pretty good. I did get bored reading it, but it happens! I think it means more to an adult and I hope that when I'm older I can read it again. Hopefully my opinions will change and I enjoy this book. So, for you all you other high school students reading this, it will get boring but just think about it and maybe even read it again, when you don't have to be tested over all the little details. You might have a different opinion. You might even like it!
