Editorial Reviews

Review

"The major success of the book . . . is Johnston's refusal to portray the Cherokee women as victims. Through every strife and struggle, these women were agents of their own power, adapting to the changing times. Walking the Trail of Tears, watching their homes plundered by Union soldiers, being forced to give up their sacred land, the Cherokee women persevered with a quiet strength, channeling their energy into what’s most important: cultural survival."
ForeWord Magazine


"If the precise connection between historical events and cultural change cannot always be drawn clearly, Johnston's engaging narrative, based on solid research, brings to life many remarkable Cherokee women whose stories provide broader insights into gendered lives."

Johnston documents the events that lead the Cherokees from the East to Oklahoma while portraying the changing gender roles that men and women experience. The author has a thorough grasp on the scholarship but highlights enough individual stories to make this book accessible and fascinating.
