Moving the hearts of the readers on behalf of the Cherokee people’s sorrow, Ehle (ee’-lee) reaches back into Indian history with the story of the Trail of Tears.
In the tradition of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, the author of the highly acclaimed The Winter People tells the moving, searing story of the betrayal and brutal dispossession of the Cherokee Nation. “(A) beautifully written and emotionally mature book . . . a must”.–New York Newsday.
Authored by the late John Ehle who rooted his historical writings in the Cherokee Nation area of the Appalachian Mountains.
