This book describes what life was like for the Native American people on the Trail of Tears during the winter of 1838 to 1839. The Trail of Tears was a journey the Native Americans made when they were forced out of their homeland by the United States government. The trail took the Native Americans west to land called Indian Territory. The tribes who walked the Trail of Tears were the Creek, Chicksaw, Cherokee, Choctaw, and Seminole. This book focuses on the story of the Cherokee tribe. The book is illustrated with drawings and paintings from the time period and with artists' ideas of how things looked on the trail. 32 pages, softcover.
