The book was set in the Cherokee Nation 1878. The main characters were two female Cherokee children and their grandmother. Before writing, elements of the plot were sent to the Cherokee Nation officers for prior approval. After completion, the manuscript was sent with an evaluation form to the Cherokee Nation. The manuscript Quatie was approved by the tribe.
