Gr 5-8-The majority of the primary sources used in each book are paintings and images of documents. Excerpted transcripts follow the main texts. In both Trail of Tears and Underground Railroad, those excerpts are from white European-American points of view. No excerpts from Cherokee leaders or slave narratives are included. The only glimpses into their lives are brief quotes within the texts. Sidebarlike captions throughout each book extend the texts. However, there is a mistake in Trail of Tears. It states that General Winfield Scott served in the Mexican-American War before removing the Cherokee from their homes. But that war took place nearly 10 years after the forced removal of the Cherokee.
