Dave is the protagonist of the Jesse Stuart short story, “Split Cherry Tree.” He is an admirable young man who is forced to deal with an old fashioned, domineering yet well-meaning father. He is honest in his dealings with both his father and teacher; he likes school, showing his interest in biology and science; and he is inquisitive (climbing the tree to get a closer look at the lizard). He is a very hard worker, putting in long hours on the farm and at school. He shows respect to his teacher and parents, and he also is justly concerned about how his father’s visit to the school will affect the others. He shows his maturity by not worrying about his classmates’ opinions about his “rough lookin’ scamp” of a father. He is able to capably juggle the two separate worlds of home on the farm and the modern views of school.
