From Library Journal
This lengthy account of a tribe that has long captured America's imagination covers Cherokee ways and history from their earliest appearance in the Southeast through the forced removal of most of the nation to Indian Territory to life today in North Carolina and Oklahoma communities. The author's well-known line drawings and paintings highlight the text. His chatty, often anecdotal presentation, compounded by casual footnotes and a few obvious inaccuracies, make this book suitable only for the general reader. Eastern Cherokee history is covered more clearly by John Finger in both his The Eastern Band of Cherokees, 1819 - 1900 (Univ. of Tennessee, 1984) and his Cher okee Americans: The Eastern Band of Cherokees in the Twentieth Century (LJ 7/91 ). -- Mary B. Davis, Huntington Free Lib., Bronx, N . Y .

This book has engulfed me totally in a wisdom that far exceeds any other into the true culture and history of the Cherokee. Like most American citizens of the United States, we probably all, from colonial times, are mixed blood with the Native Americans.
I was born in Southwest Virginia of poor parents, a coal miner's son, but rich in traditions of honesty and knowing how to survive. My kinfolks were like that and we were proud of our existence, not knowing from whence came our traditional way of life.
This book explains all that and I recommend it to anyone searching for the way they lived, fought and died. Reminds me much of the way our armed forces still serve the country even until today. Amazon opened the door at a affordable price and we respect them and the author - and give thanks for their existence. Old Timer
