A confusing tale Jan. 22 2013
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an interesting book, but the manner in which it is set up was confusing to my 4th grade grandson. It was at his reading ability and would probably be good for 5th and 6th grade. The confusion lies partly in all the inserts that try to give information, like `today's perspective `and `yesterday's headlines'.
It tells the tale of the Cherokee nation and their removal from their ancestral lands and what becomes known as the Trail of Tears. It does have a good glossary, defining vocabulary words that are in bold print throughout the reading.

There are times that certain facts should have been emphasized. It doesn't explain the significance of the Cherokees having a written language the information is just stated that they did. It brings up General Winfield Scott, stating he was well known for his accomplishments in the War of 1812, which he was, but then says nothing about him except he is chosen to lead the removal. It would have been better to include some of the primary resources, in simple language like the records of the Cherokee Agency in Georgia and what they report as their reaction to his assignment there. Then there are also letters and diaries of the soldiers on the trail which can tell their depiction of the horrid conditions.

There is nothing mentioned about the broken treaties or the lies the Indian nations were told, which could have been a good object lesson for young readers. It's a decent attempt to educate young readers, but it could have been done in a smoother way that did not involve so much jumping back and forth, both in its telling and in the method used.

The Trail of Tears Dec 28 2012
By chickenlittle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is fairly accurate until page 46. General Scott came from the Seminole wars in April 1838. Gen. Scotts headquarters were located at Ft. Cass (Charleston, TN.)"The Long March) page 48. In June1838, 3 detachments were sent west by the military by boat, walking, train and boat. In August 1838, after a revision of the "Treaty" voted by Senate and Congress and signed by President Van Buren.The Cherokee People led by Chief Ross divided into 12 detachments.Lewis Ross was responsible for the supplies and set up sites along the routes. Less than 500 died on the trip west. "No" soldiers went with them. A small group that did not want to go with Ross. Bell requested security and received a small group under Lt. Deas. They went a different route.
