The Trail of Tears

Paperback (Heinemann April 1, 2004)
Discover the everyday lives of American Indians living in the East and how and why in the 1830s they were forced from their homelands. Find out what it was like to be captured at home, put in stockades, then made to walk along rough trails to Indian Territory. Learn how the U.S. government failed to keep its promises to the American Indians whose lives were changed forever. This book describes in detail the lives of the Cherokee people who were forced to give up their homeland and traditions to start new lives on land chosen for them by the government. Each book in the series uses reconstruction illustrations and photographs along with clear text and fact boxes to bring the story of our nation to life.
