THE CHEROKEE NATION AND THE TRAIL OF TEARS

by | Read by George K. Wilson

History • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

The forced removal of Native Americans from the Southeast to the Indian Territory (now Oklahoma) is one of many sad episodes in the history of U.S. relations with its indigenous peoples. The Trail of Tears, as that removal was called, sent 17,000 people, mostly "assimilated" Cherokees, from their homeland. The book tells not only this story, but also much of the history and mythology of the Cherokee Nation. George Wilson offers an able reading, capturing the tone of the book. He offers hints of accents when quoting first-person passages, which serve as quotation marks for the ear. Further, his variation of volume and pace keeps listeners engaged during lengthy narrative passages. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
