The Cherokee nation by Marion Lena Starkey( Book )

18 editions published between 1946 and 1995 in English and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Dust Jacket: First published a half-century ago, this classic history of the Cherokee Nation tells in vivid detail the tragic story of a great and beloved people both before and after it was uprooted and forced to travel that bitter road known as the "Trail of Tears." Marion L. Starkey relates how the Cherokees had at first lived in harmony with their white neighbors in the Southeastern United States; how they had adopted modern dress and technology; and how Sequoia had developed a Cherokee alphabet. The author explains how this harmonious relationship was shattered beginning in the late 1830s, when the Federal government undertook to remove the Cherokees from their ancestral lands in Georgia and the adjoining states, and force them across the Mississippi to what would become Indian Territory and then Oklahoma. She recounts the struggles surrounding this shameful removal, masterfully describing the roles played by the U.S. government, the state of Georgia, and the Cherokee people. Victims finally of greed and cynicism, the Cherokees were herded along the "Trail of Tears"-an enforced migration which produced incredible suffering, horror, and death, and which remains one of the darkest chapters in American history. Written with great empathy and respect for a noble people, The Cherokee Nation is a book for today's readers to experience, learn from-and remember
