Indian removal : the emigration of the Five Civilized Tribes of Indians by Grant Foreman ( Book )
54 editions published between 1932 and 1989 in English and held by 2,649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is the account of the removal of the southern Indians. In the North weaker and more primitive tribes yielded with comparatively small resistance to the power and chicane of the white man. A different situation in the southern states called into requisition different methods and resulted in a more complicated story. At least four of the tribes of southern Indians had so far advanced in learning and culture as to establish themselves permanently on the soil, build homes and farms, cultivate the land, raise herds and varied crops, including cotton which they carded, spun, and wove into cloth with which they clothed themselves. They laid out roads, built mills, engaged in commerce, and sent their children to schools conducted by the missionaries ... Naturally, a people of such achievements, aware of their rights under prior possession and treaty guarantees with the national government, stubbornly resisted the aggressions of the whites. The forcible uprooting and expulsion of sixty thousand such people over a period of more than a decade, developed a story without parallel in the history of this country and resulted in a vast accumulation of manuscript material from which this account is mainly written"--Preface

Indian justice : a Cherokee murder trial at Tahlequah in 1840 by John Howard Payne ( Book )
9 editions published between 1934 and 2002 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From dust jacket: "Archilla Smith, signer of the Cherokee Treaty of New Echota under which the Cherokees were moved to the West, in 1840 slew John McIntosh with a knife, and was arrested and tried for the crime under the Cherokee Constitution which had been adopted a year earlier. In the trial, which took place at Tahlequah, Stand Watie, later Confederate general and war chief of the Cherokees during the Civil War, defended Smith, and Jesse Bushyhead, perhaps the best beloved of the early Cherokees, was the judge during the latter part of the trial, and pronounced sentence upon Smith. The proceeding occurred under the shadow of the famous Cherokee political assassinations of 1839, and was electric with Cherokee party politics. The report of this trial, made in the minutest detail by John Howard Payne, present among the Cherokees as the guest of Chief John Ross, constitutes one of the most remarkable documents in all literature applicable to Oklahoma."
