KIRKUS REVIEW

Simply and affectingly told, the story of the brief flowering of the Cherokee Nation (unique among Indian groups in its adoption of a written constitution and invention of a written language) and of its subsequent betrayal by land-hungry Georgians and former ally Andrew Jackson. Bealer combines history and epitaph with quiet dignity.
