Brimming with quotes from original source documents, this young adult series explores the complex relations between Native Americans and non-Indians from the arrival of Columbus to the present day. All titles make clear the importance of Native Americans to this country's past and its present.Dramatic Narratives Compose a Compelling ReferenceBy weaving passages from original documents into dramatic narratives, each title in the series creates a remarkably vivid portrait of specific aspects of American Indian heritage and history. The series provides the kind of valuable information too frequently left out of textbooks and general histories. Each practical reference is enhanced by carefully chosen historical drawings, photographs, and maps; an up-to-date bibliography and further reading list; and a complete index.A Wealth of Learning Aids and Features Enriches the Study of Native American History-- Lively narrative and lucid visuals explore Native Americans' roles in the country's development and history.-- Special boxed features highlight crucial topics and the roles of significant individuals.-- Coverage of twentieth-century issues and events reveals that Native American culture is as much a part of America's present as the past.-- A must for the study of American history: the in-depth coverage fosters an appreciation for cultural diversity."Children cry and many men cry, and all look sad like when friends die, but they say nothing and just put heads down and keep on go west." This vivid, disturbing account is one of the many compelling descriptions found in this history of the Cherokee Trail of Tears. An abundance of excerpts from original source documentsand first-person narratives reveal the thoughts, actions, and feelings of both those of the Cherokee Nation and of the U.S. government during the forced exile of the Cherokee from their homeland.
