That the truth be told about the removal of the Cherokee and other native tribes from their ancient lands on the American continent is a noble goal of those of us left here after so much strife, struggle and conflict. I felt like I was walking a trail of tears as the author so deftly and authentically led the reader on this journey describing the path chosen by so many great men and women to stand up for what is right and just against the prevailing powers of the age. I cannot look at a $20 bill the same way ever again. Eventually we see men as they truly are when the truth is well told.

I am half Cherokee (with some Choctaw) and grew up knowing that Andrew Jackson was our historical nemesis and that my g.g.g. grandparents had been removed to our rez in Tahlequah OK. This book gave me so much greater insight and complicated my understanding of Jackson, Ross, and my own ancestors. I loved getting to listen to one of my favorite NPR voices as well-made an already fascinating and enraging story all the more engaging.
