Publisher's Description

The Brutal Road West It's late summer 1838. President Martin Van Buren issues an order that the fifteen thousand Cherokee Indians living in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina are to be evicted from their homeland. Forced to migrate to Indian Territory, the Cherokees begin their tragic, one-thousand-mile journey westward. Most of the seven thousand soldiers escorting them along the way are brutally cruel. But Cherokee Rose, an eighteen-year-old Indian girl, finds one soldier, Lieutenant Britt Claiborne, willing to stand up for them. Both Christians, Cherokee Rose discovers that Britt is also a quarter Cherokee himself. It's upon the Trail of Tears that they fall in love, dreaming of one day marrying and finding a place to call home together.

    NOT a true picture of the people, places, or times.

    The Lacys present this story as fact-based fiction, but it is immediately clear that they did little research into the time of The Removal, the Cherokee People, or the land they still inhabit in the Great Smoky Mountains.

    NATURE ERRORS: A raccoon chasing a fox in the woods on a sunny afternoon. Both are nocturnal. Foxes are much faster than raccoons.

    The fragrant dogwoods in bloom in mid-May. Dogwoods bloom early in the Spring. They are never fragrant. They have no scent at all.

    A poisonous snake bites someone on the Trail in February. Who doesn't know that reptiles are dormant in the winter?

    HISTORICAL ERRORS: John Ross, 1/8th Cherokee, 7/8th Scottish, was born in Turkeytown, AL and never lived in a Cherokee village nor learned to speak his mother's native language. The term "half-breed" is insulting and culturally alien to Cherokee.

    Sequoyah was born in Tennessee and never learned English, nor did he care about Christianity. He first met John Ross after the Removal.

    The Cherokee culture was and is nothing like what was written in this fictional novel. Cherokee are matriarchal. No leader wore a large feathered headdress. Daughters don't need paternal permission to go for a walk. Fathers don't whip their sons. Character names like Bando, Binjie, Tisimndo, Ridino contain sounds not heard in their language. The conversion of the "shaman" was contrived and ignored how early Christians really witnessed to the receptive natives.

    GEOGRAPHICAL ERRORS: Early chapters, taking place in 1801, mention towns of Bryson City and Gatlinburg. Later John Ross is in Atlanta, and the displaced people rest at Lake Chickamauga.

    Bryson city was named for Colonel Thaddeus Dillard Bryson, born in1829.

    In 1856, a post office was established in the general store of Radford Gatlin (c. 1798 - 1880), giving the town the name "Gatlinburg".

    John Ross takes a train from Atlanta. At that time (as fans of the Walking Dead can tell you) the budding town in Georgia was called Terminus and wouldn't see the railroad completed for several more years.

    Construction of Chickamauga Dam began in 1936 and was completed in 1940, a full century after this story took place.

    Lack of research combined with stilted dialog makes this the worst minefield of errors I have ever forced myself to finish.

    What a wonderful book about the Indians and their struggle in life. They were so mistreated by the government. I loved the Christian attitudes of the characters. What a great book at a great price.

    This is a well written novel which not only entertains, but also touches on heartbreak and history gone before.
