The Cherokee Nation : a history by Robert J Conley( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first history of the Cherokees to appear in over four decades, this is also the first to be endorsed by the tribe and the first to be written by a Cherokee." "Robert Conley begins his survey with Cherokee origin myths and legends. He then explores their relations with neighboring Indian groups and European missionaries and settlers. He traces their forced migrations west, relates their participations on both sides of the Civil War and the wars of the twentieth century, and concludes with an examination of Cherokee life today." "Conley provides analyses for general readers of all ages to learn the significance of tribal lore and Cherokee tribal law. Following the history is a listing of the Principal Chiefs of the Cherokees with a brief biography of each and separate listings of the chiefs of the Eastern Cherokees and the Western Cherokees. For those who want to know more about Cherokee heritage and history, Conley offers additional reading lists at the end of each chapter."--Jacket

The Real People saga continues the spellbinding account of one of the most dramatic and devastating event in Cherokee lore -- the overthrow of the priests. The drought has worsened with no end in sight. The imposing Standing-in-the-Doorway, most exalted of the Ani-Kutani -- the highly privileged priesthood -- knows he must produce rain or lose the confidence of his people. In desperation, the crafty priest decides to revive an ancient custom and designs a four-day ceremony intended to dazzle an increasingly disenchanted populace. The priests' aging leader is ruled by his passion for the arrogant young Two-Heads, who has a childhood score to settle and a long-suppressed erotic fantasy to fulfill. Two Heads schemes to build the ceremony around his warped desires -- a plan that is potentially dangerous for himself and the entire priesthood. For the priests may be about to go too far -- and if they arouse the enmity of the Real People will seal their doom. --
