Overview

The dramatic story of the Cherokee people has long captivated appreciators of American history. In "Cherokee," the history and culture of one of the most resilient original peoples of the United States is brought to life through spectacular photography and vivid prose.

The Cherokees' poignant story is one that is difficult to believe: from their shameful treatment at the hands of the Colonial settlers, to their "Removal" west over the Trail of Tears in the 1800s, to their resurgence and current prosperity as a distinct nation. Presented in this elegant volume, the tale of the Cherokees' courage and endurance is at once remarkable, stirring, and enlightening.

Author Robert J. Conley recounts the history and struggle of the Cherokee and offers a window into today's Cherokee culture in moving detail. Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chadwick Smith provides an eloquent introduction to the book. The stunning photography of David G. Fitzgerald portrays the land and lifeways of these proud people, including many powerful portraits of contemporary individuals.
