In this study centering on the Cherokee Nation, we learn that three key historical events in the 19th and early 20th centuries - removal, the Civil War and allotment of their lands - forced a radical renegotiation of gender roles and relations in Cherokee society.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The major success of the book . . . is Johnston's refusal to portray the Cherokee women as victims. Through every strife and struggle, these women were agents of their own power, adapting to the changing times. Walking the Trail of Tears, watching their homes plundered by Union soldiers, being forced to give up their sacred land, the Cherokee women persevered with a quiet strength, channeling their energy into what s most important: cultural survival." ForeWord Magazine"
"If the precise connection between historical events and cultural change cannot always be drawn clearly, Johnston's engaging narrative, based on solid research, brings to life many remarkable Cherokee women whose stories provide broader insights into gendered lives." Journal of Southern History
