Overview

The Trail of Tears by Sabrina Crewe, D. L. Birchfield

The Trail of Tears is the name given to a tragic journey made in the 1830s by sixty thousand Native Americans from the southeastern part of the United States. This book tells the story of their exile by the U.S. government, an action that led to the loss of their homes and the death of fifteen thousand people. It explores the background to Indian removal, including the coming of Europeans to North America and the founding of a new nation hungry for land. The book also shows how, in spite of brave efforts to rebuild their nations, the removed Indians had their land taken from them yet again.
