Children's LiteraturePart of the "Events That Shaped America" series, this book describes the Trail of Tears, why people demanded the removal of the Five Civilized Tribes, and the influence of the Trail of Tears on Indian Nations. The text is clear; difficult and unusual words are defined in a glossary at the end of the book. The authors also include an index, a time line, a list of further information, as well as a list of things to "think about and do." The activities, all based on thinking and writing what you think, will not do for a "hands on" activity, but they will help spark some imaginations. The book has a large number of photos, illustrations, and maps. This is a good resource for curious young readers or doing a school report on this forced Indian migration. 2004, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 8 to 12.
