In this work of historical fiction, Marcus tells the tale of young Billy Powell, half-British, half-Creek who is forced to flee to Freedom Land after being falsely accused of murder. Freedom Land, a refuge of sorts for escaped slaves, also the home of the Seminole, is the setting for Powell's transformation into the legendary Chief Osceola and his subsequent struggle against U.S. forces in the Seminole Wars.
