WALKING THE TRAIL was a true gem of a book. This is a work of fiction based on historical events. From the day he was born, Striker began walking the Trail. The Trail was like a river and he was always swimming upstream. From early on, he lost everyone that was important to him. He was a good man and although his character is fictional, I'm certainly sure this tells the tale of many Cherokee and other Native tribes who were led down the trail. He was never able to fully embrace his heritage until he began writing. He helped free slaves and was against slavery as in a way, he was a slave to the white man himself.
Once he was able to settle down, tragedy struck yet again. It seemed that everyone he thought he could count on, let him down. He never stopped having the dreams of the Trail though. It haunted him throughout his life.
This author, ROBERT J. CONLEY wrote many books in this genre during his lifetime. He received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writers' Circle of the Americas. This makes me interested in his other books and if they've been published, especially in audio format.
WILLIAM L. STURDEVANT'S performance was beyond outstanding. He really captured the character of Striker. His feelings, his emotions. He was the perfect narrator for this book. I was impressed. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. Definitely recommended.
