Voices from the Trail of Tears is an excellent choice for anyone interested in Cherokee history or the removal of the southeastern Indians. It would also be an excellent choice for teachers or researchers including those doing genealogy research. The book is thoughtfully indexed and carefully noted with unobtrusive endnotes and extensive bibliography at the end of the book.
much better understanding of our western expansion reality. This work is done so tastefully, yet truthfully.
Both sides are shown as much as possible, simply because it is first hand details from the soldiers who were sympathetic to those being removed. The dialogue from the Cherokee leaders/agents is a bit confusing, as it's hard to imagine someone who is of the people, taking on the roll of the remover! If you already have exposure to removal stories, then it makes more sense. It's helpful that the author has clarified some differences in reports from different narrators. Knowing that so many Cherokee are decendents
from these very survivors of such a horrendous event, is amazing. But to realize how many of what
would have been ancestors, lie in graves along that trail...,is mind-boggling. I will still search for the
read that contains dialogue from the people who were uprooted, but this book is very descriptive.
Locations are well documented, if you are researching where an ancestor may have been buried along the trail.
