The other protagonist is the child's master, James Tilton, the surveyor-general of the Territory, who had been a U.S. officer in the Mexican-American War and would later appear to have split loyalties -- to the U.S. and then to the Confederacy -- after the Civil War broke out.
The book is carefully researched and makes the most of what is a limited record, particularly regarding the child. It combines factual matters with the authors' fictional recreations of conversations and thoughts of the protagonists (delineated by use of italics for the recreations).
It's a fast read. But it raises important issues and observations that stay with the reader long afterwards.
