The book on which this movie was based was originally published in 1977 under the title and subtitle "The Education of Little Tree: A True Story," with the author's name given as "Forrest Carter." However, after the publication, it was revealed that the book was not really a true story, and "Forrest Carter" was actually a pseudonym for Asa Earl Carter. Asa Carter was a Ku Klux Klansman and the alleged author of George Wallace's 1963 "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" speech. See more »
The film takes place in the 1930s. At that time The Pledge of Allegiance did not include the words "Under God" . It wasn't until 1956 that those words were added to the Pledge of Allegiance. See more »
I thought this movie was beautiful and moving. Fantastic acting by James Cromwell and Tantoo Cardinal. I think the movie got lost amongst the big studio dribble. Too bad. There should be more movies like this.
