Margaret Panofsky grew up surrounded by Northern California’s live oak trees and golden wild-oat grass, but abandoned what’s left of that idyllic beauty to live in New York City. She is a musician who plays the viola da gamba and is founder and director of New York University’s The Teares of the Muses, a consort of viols. After years of playing Renaissance and Baroque music, she believes that her first novel has a definite musical lilt.

As in many myths and sagas, the backbone of The Last Shade Tree is the hero’s quest or journey—both external within the world, and internal within the self. Sequoyah most resembles two mythological heroes, Moses and Ulysses. The first hero leads his people to a new place, and the second hero spends many years seeking a way home as he cares for his band of similarly stranded adventurers.

“Trumpty Dumpty had a great fit:
Twittering bitterly made his brain split.
All the King’s minions and all the King’s kin,
Grabbed the Epoxy and glued him again.”
Margaret Panofsky

“Viva fui in silvis sum dura occisa securi dum vixi tacui mortua dulce cano” is inscribed on the fingerboard of a 16th-century viola da gamba made by Kaspar Tieffenbrucker. It translates, “I was alive in the woods; I was cut down by the cruel axe. While I lived I was silent; In death I sweetly sing.”
