In 1838, 13,000 Cherokee were forced to leave their homeland in the Southeast and walk 900 miles to present-day Oklahoma. Hunger, cold, fatigue, and disease threatened their very survival. Their grueling relocation trek - the Trail of Tears - takes on new immediacy and meaning with this stunning work of fiction. Maritole loses not only her home and her settled life in North Carolina, but also many of the people closest to her. A chorus of voices joins hers to vividly recreate the tragic story of the Cherokee removal. Amid wrenching scenes of hardship and pain, there is the underlying strength that ultimately allowed this ancient people to endure.

No - I love American history and really looked forward to this book. I tried to listen multiple times and just could not connect
I think it was more the story than the narrator
I did not make it very far into the book. Perhaps there was something buried in there that I did not find.
My fault in that I didn't listen to the preview. I think I would have skipped the purchase if I had.
I love this subject and read a lot of Native American history. This book was boring & tedious. I did not like all the different voices, but prefer one reader. After 45 minutes of trying to enjoy the story, I never finished it.
