This book covers history that many Americans will never know. The book ties into the Trail of Tears, and focuses in the first half on the Shoe Boots family, and how Native Americans in their quest to become just like the Europeans viewed Africans both pre-whites and post-whites. In a desperate attempt to retain their land no only did the Natives walk away from much of their culture and their ways of life the adopted the Europeans ways and began looking at Africans not only as a different people but as property.
If you are even remotely interested in this period of history, by all means read this book. Tiya did a very nice job tying in all aspects of what was taking place in Georgia before and after Andrew Jackson got involved.
Reads well, not like a school text book.
