Peter Talbot This brief heavily anecdotal, riveting account from the native American point of view (heavy with Cherokee, Choctaw, Seneca and other Eastern Tribes that predate the Plains Indians so stereotyped in Westerns is heart-breaking but even tempered (!) indictment of all white folks, the "Great Fathers" like Jacksa Chula Harjo (Cherokee for "Jackson the Hard-ass") is the book to read if you want to feel, hear, suffer the Trail of Tears. Horrible to pick up. Impossible to put down.
