Publisher's Summary

From the "Trail of Tears" to Wounded Knee and Little Bighorn, the narrative of American history is incomplete without the inclusion of the Native Americans that lived on the continent before European settlers arrived in the 16th and 17th centuries. Since the first contact between natives and settlers, tribes like the Sioux, Cherokee, and Navajo have both fascinated and perplexed outsiders with their history, language, and culture. In Charles River Editors' Native American Tribes series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the history and culture of North America's most famous native tribes in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known.

Native American Tribes: The History and Culture of the Cherokee comprehensively covers the culture and history of the famous tribe, profiling their origins, their famous leaders, and their lasting legacy.

Narrator a bit abrasive.

What didn’t you like about Scott Larson’s performance?

The narrator was a bit abrasive and pretty opinionated in his way of speech. I really liked the Comanche book from this series, because I have it on while I work, and the narrator was calm and I could just zone out and listen to the book. In this performance, I feel like rather than have a neutral, informative tone, the reader constantly draws attention to himself with the inflections in his voice. Not what I'm looking for, and I couldn't even get through the first chapter.

Very informative for such a short audiobook.

shorter than most audio books I listen to but you will never look at president Jackson the same.

The worse narration I have ever heard.

Fascinating topic but very badly narrated. The book has little useful information but the narrator spoils even that.

In-depth Cherokee Tribe history!!

This is an Incredible book that not only gives Cherokee history from the time of the arrival of DeSoto's expedition of 1540, but also, the history of the Cherokee ideas, such as: the earths creation, Cherokee religion, government, & ceremonies. Also, some of the Cherokee language is introduced, including the individual who created the Cherokee alphabet. Absolutely a must for Beginners to the Cherokee World.

Well worth the listen

Great to get more knowledge on the lead up to the trail of tears and all of the things that most only have an outsiders view of.
