Recommends it for: Anyone who knows the Trail of Tears
Most Americans who are interested in Native American history are familiar with Andrew Jackson's removal of Eastern Indians to the West and the tragic Trail of Tears. Not many know of the removal of the Navajo from their beloved Canyons of New Mexico and Arizona to the horror of Bosque Redondo in the desert of Arizona. Just as tragic but with, if one could call it that, a happier ending.
