You Shoot Me Now: Based on the True Story of Walla Tonehka by Howard Burman

In 1897 in the Indian Territory (now the state of Oklahoma) the young Choctaw Indian is convicted of murder and is sentenced to be executed, but he is allowed to go free and play baseball for his team if he promises to return after his final game to be shot.
He agrees.
His story garners national interest and is reported by newspapers across the country. Questions abound. Will je honor his promise and agree to be executed? Should he? If he does, is he a hero or a fool? At the last minute will he run off? Is the Choctaw sense of honor stronger than that of others? Is the greater sin preferring life to honor and for the sake of living to lose what makes life worth having?
