The United States was very different in the 1830's. Native Americans had no rights, and were at the mercy of the white settlers. In 1839, the Cherokee nation was ordered by the American government to move to Tahlequah, Oklahoma, abandoning their native lands in North Carolina and Georgia. This is the story of one Cherokee family, forced to walk from North Carolina to Oklahoma in the winter of 1839-40. A Cherokee woman loses her husband, gives birth at gunpoint, and gives up her precious newborn baby girl to white people who were complete strangers, who then tried to raise her as a white girl in a very racist society. This is the story of love, sacrifice, inspiration, determination, and faith -- a story you will read over and over again.BONUS: Family recipes handed down from generation to generation are included!
