Based on a true historical figure, Tademy tells the story of Cow Tom, an African-American slave who belonged to Yargee, a Creek Indian chief. Blessed with a gift for languages, Cow Tom was able to master several tribal languages as well as English. Using these skills as a translator for Yargee and the U.S. Army during the Seminole Indian removal, Tom was able to buy his freedom plus freedom for his wife Amy and two oldest daughters. Spanning the years 1830 through 1910, the novel is told through the eyes of Cow Tom and his granddaughter Rose who inherited much of his character as well as his secrets. The stories of both Cow Tom and Rose bring to light a hidden, often dark, corner of American history as well as a sweeping portrayal of the resilience and courage of people facing often impossible odds.
