Dan Wimberly’s Cherokee in Controversy examines the life of Jesse Bushyhead, a Cherokee minister, interpreter, and leader throughout the first half of the 19th century. Overlooked by historians, Wimberly traces Bushyhead’s life through the course of seven chapters, utilizing Bushyhead’s story to likewise explore “divisive political, economic, and social developments among Cherokees” in the early 19th century (viii).
