The Cherokee Trail of Tears

The Cherokee Trail of Tears , the first photo-essay to tell the story of the Trail of Tears, pays tribute to the seventeen Cherokee detachments that were pushed westward into Oklahoma.
Award-winning photographer David G. Fitzgerald traveled the trail for more than three years, photographing and documenting pertinent historic sites - some of which were previously unknown - as well as artifacts along the Trail of Tears.
The insightful and informative text by Duane King, one of the country's foremost experts on the Trail of Tears, covers six major routes of the trail. King faithfully re-creates the Cherokee' journey for readers by drawing from military journals, diaries of eyewitnesses, payment vouchers, contemporary newspaper accounts, nineteenth-century maps, and oral traditions.
Foreword by former Principal Chief Chadwick Smith.
