"With A Seminole Legend, Betty Mae Jumper joins the ranks of Native American Women who are coming forward to tell their life experiences. This collaboration between Jumper and Patsy West, an ethnohistorian who contributes general tribal history, is a rare and authentic account of a pioneering Florida Seminole family. It will take its place in Seminole literature, historical and anthropological studies, Florida history, women's history, and Native American studies." "Betty Mae Tiger was born in 1923 to a Seminole Indian mother and a French trapper father, a fair-skinned half-breed who was nearly put to death at age five by tribal medicine men. She became the first formally educated Florida Seminole, attending a government boarding school in Cherokee, North Carolina, where at age fourteen she learned to speak English.
