Very nice book that really gives you a sense of what it was like to be a Cherokee Indian in the past with a bit of information about the current Cherokee tribes.

This was a very interesting book that gave many facts about the Cherokee Indians. I felt that the cartoonish pictures took away from the story though. It made it seem like the book was historical fiction instead of being informational. I felt that having photographs, even if they were posed shots of modern people that are wearing costumes, would have given the book a better feel so the children would realize this was a true event in history.

A wonderful story about the life of Native American people. The books describes how the Cherokee people lived It provides information about their language and their contribution to medicine. This book can be used for a social studies lesson on Native Americans and their importance to the America. Grades 1-4.
