This is the most shameful period in the history of the United States. Greed and arrogance at is worst. And the Indian still suffers.

The TRAIL OF TEARS is an outstanding true story of the Cherokee people , Cherokee people are social , they don't hate anyone , I am the decsendent of my Cherokee grandmother , I speak for all the Cherokee people because they are my family , and I love them .

I read this nook for a class and the book is not easy reading. One fact is that the book is truly historical, which can be boring to some people. Jahoda didn't have much characterization as i would have liked it to have. All the characters were flat. I understand that she has done a lot of reasearch to get this whole story in one book. It was nice to have original quotes, but it would have been good if it had thoughts that passed the chracters. The reader doesn't get affected much emotionally and book is pretty static. Overall the book is pretty boring

I was always curios about the history of native americans and living so far away from the USA these people are only known to us as the baddies in Westerns. I was shocked and glued to the book when their history started unfolding as I read the book. It has really enlightened me to what 'civilized man' are capable of doing to fellow humans without remorse. A great book for history lovers.
