Publisher's Summary

Explore the cruel history of the Trail of Tears.

One of the darkest and cruelest chapters in the history of the United States occurred when the nation’s young government decided to remove the native peoples from their lands in the name of profit.

Having helped settlers for hundreds of years, five Native American tribes found it increasingly more difficult to relate to, and trust, the country that had once acted as their allies. The native peoples had fought alongside the Americans to gain freedom from England, the nation that the colonists deemed oppressive and unfair. The native peoples acted as benefactors and teachers to help the colonists gain an advantage against an army that was far superior to the small forces that the colonists could muster. The new country owed a lot of its existence to the native peoples, yet the settlers, who were of European descent, did not see it that way.

The following topics will be covered in this audiobook:   

  • The early relationship
  • The growth of Manifest Destiny
  • The discovery of gold and the Indian Removal Act
  • Peaceful protests and a push for recognition
  • The people versus the president
  • The militia force removal
  • The trail of tears
  • Stories of pain, loss, and love
  • Making a new home
  • And a great deal more you don't want to miss out on!

an excellent source for research

This is a book to learn facts from, not to enjoy an emotionally jarring narrative. If you are looking for a truly enjoyable narrative of Native American life that is historically accurate yet fills in the unknown blanks with reputable intuitiveness,Trail of Tears would make an excellent source for research.

A dark chapter in our history

It should shock the conscience to think a government could be so cold, selfish and cruel. Every English and history student should make it a priority to read and study this monumental piece of literature.

amazing book

The author also does a good job of not presupposing prior knowledge of the Indian removals and the Trail of Tears. I thought that he could have expanded in some areas and shrunk in others. Overall, this was a very informative work.

This book answered all questions

Government at that time..& still is hurting the Native Americans and even their Other citizens of this country...I pray that something will change... but change has to come from the citizens & natives of this country before anything can happen...I pray soon before it's too late.

Well written on the subject.

More than decent content with normally clarified ideas which work well for as a kind of perspective yet it should be supplemented with different assets for autonomous examination. It would be greatly useful to incorporate issues toward the finish of every part with arrangements toward the finish of the book.

Got Just the Facts, valuable.

I haven't read many books on this subject, this one provided me the much info and now I don’t need to read anymore! The book gives me Tribes who were part of this tragedy credit for their part in this hardhearted treatment of man! We appear to be so delicate to vicious treatment of people of other nations today.

It is a nice primer.

This author did a great job of describing the forced removals of cherokee, muscogee creek, seminole, chickasaw, and choctaw nations. I think every school child and adult should read this book. It is heartbreaking that human beings could treat other humans in such a deplorable manner. May we learn from the past, so we can be more humane in the future?

This is historical, this is great.

This was greatly written book, explaining all of the treaties and what happened to the muscogee creek, seminole, chickasaw, and choctaw nations as they were relocated and devolved into what is left of the tribes. The resilience is remarkable. Loved this book!

My heart hurts for the great people.

This was an eye opening practice. I have a better understanding of what that native people of this land went through and the despicable treatment they were given. My heart hurts for the great people that were subject to the genocide by the United States government.

Very well written, good book.

This book is truly informative on the events that led up to the forced removal of the Cherokee. It tells all about muscogee creek, seminole, chickasaw, and choctaw nations. I only wish there had been more accounts of the forced March by Cherokee people who experienced it and/or their descendents.
