2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By GB Banks (publisher, author) on July 3, 2008
Format: Kindle Edition
Below excerpted from review of Come, Wewoka & Diary of Medicine Flower:

One of the greatest tragedies of our American History, and of the history of our world is the abomination that led to the Trail of Tears of 1831. The devastation that occurred due to the forced relocation of entire nations from their homelands due to the greed of the American government still lingers today within the Five Civilized Tribes who were the victims of this action, and many of Edward Patterson's poetry in this dual collection deals with those after effects, and expresses the anguish, anger, and frustrations that continue to haunt his people almost 200 years later...

....This collection reflects what I believe to be poetry at its best, poetry which gives us a peek into the heart of the human soul from which we come away feeling a little more enlightened.

This is a poetry collection that every lover of great literature should find moving.

- Gregory Bernard Banks, author, reader, reviewer

I was moved by this inspirational retelling of a historical disaster.
Once started I could not set down the poems of tragedy and conveyance of a People so oppressed and degraded. It made my heart sad to think My people (both white and native american) had brought this to pass.

Touching in its intensity the author has brought life to a past era and shared a side of the story seldom heard.

Thank you for sharing thoughts, stories and passion of an age gone by but hopefully not forgotten for its impact on humanity.

I highly recommend this book to all.
Sincerely,

Format: Kindle Edition
I had picked up this little book on purpose. Indeed, I had visited at Cherokee, NC during the Festival of the Nations before and have learned a lot about the "Trails of Tears" there.

This book is a combo out of poems and short, short stories. All them express that terrible loss from long ago just beautifully. Within different poems lines like:
"We are the children of the sky"
"Littered are the souls"
"My hawk weeps for me in the homeland"

create a feeling of what the great nation of the Cherokees has lost during this dreadful epoch.
Among the short short stories
"Locked Doors and the Cherokee Heart"
"Racing the Devil"
"A Matter for the Buckskins"

stood out for me.Great work, Edward Patterson, of keeping the stories alive and vivid.

I loved the imagery of these poems. They transport a person to a different time and space entirely.
