Overview

Emmet Starr's "History of the Cherokee Indians and Their Legends and Folklore" is the classic account of the early Cherokees, their constitution, treaties with the federal government, land transactions, school system, migration and resettlement, committees, councils, and officials, religion, language, and culture, and a host of other topics. More than half the book is devoted to genealogies and biographies, of which there are several hundred. The biographies in particular, each averaging a paragraph or more, are noteworthy for their focus on the genealogical events of birth, marriage, and death over a period of several generations.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
As one of the so-called civilized tribes, the Cherokee interacted with and even married non-Indians much more so than other Native Americans, so far more of their history is known. In 1921, Starr recorded the biographies and genealogies of as many Cherokees as he could find across the United States, generating many hundreds of such records. The information here will provide great fodder for anyone researching the Cherokee. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
