The removal of the Cherokee from their homes in the mountains of Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, now known as "The Trail of Tears," is recounted in this work. Glancy's moving fictional account presents this tragedy from several different perspectives; leaders, soldiers, pastors, wives and husbands all tell their tales of enduring the hardships of this journey. As each performer concentrates on his or her particular character, we are treated to performances that are focused, undiluted and full of passion. The interview with the author at the end treats the listener to insights on both the work and the historical event. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
