I liked the book. The pictures were specific and detailed and helped me understand the text better. I would recommend this book to other Cherokees who want to know more about their ancestors, and to anyone interested in learning more about Cherokee, especially I they are 8 and older.
As the Trail of Tears; this is an heart wrenching true story that all children of all races should read. I found myself struggling to control my voice which was on the verge of tears as I read to my five year old who was touch dramatically by the sorrowful pictures. I also noticed that my children remained attentive engrossed in this tragic event of their forefathers. I think that other children, even those not of the red race, would also settle down and desire to read in hopes of learning about the infamous event that touches so many people's hearts.
It is a wonderful idea to introduce young children to other "American cultures" and American history early.
Good maps. The book even presents information about Sequoyah and the Cherokee alphabet, setting the stage that the Cherokee were settled and "civilized" people in the eyes of most of their white neighbors.
Some Cherokee phrases are included in the book, making it even more meaningful and useful. Excellent book.
2nd grader: I think it's the second best book I've ever read (after the Bible).
5th grader: I just felt something stirring inside of me. I know I'm part Cherokee, and I am enjoying learning about my ancestors and all they went through so I could live now. It was a really great book.
I explained what I know- but the book brought the vision more clear.
