Summary
"It is February 1839, and the survivors of the Cherokee Trail of Tears have just arrived in Fort Gibson, Indian Territory. A quarter of the removed Indian population have died along the way, victims of cold, disease, and despair. Now the Cherokee people confront an unknown future. How will they build anew from nothing? How will they plow fields of unbroken sod, full of rocks too heavy to lift? How will they learn the ways of a strange land, where even the birdsong is unfamiliar? Can they put aside the pain and anger of Removal and find peace?"--p. [4] of cover
