Beginning with the birth of the Cherokee patriarch Major Ridge in the 1770â?™s, Thurman Wilkins tells the events that led to the Trail of Tears, through the eyes of the illustrious Ridge family. Major Ridge and his Connecticut-educated son John were willing to abandon the rich tribal homelands in North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia and emigrate west to the Indian Territory to escape the white invaders.

During the decades of fruitless negotiations that culminated in the infamous Treaty of New Echota, Georgia, in 1835, the Ridges and their relatives Elias Boudinot and Stand Watie became persuaded that further protests by the Cherokees would lead only to their annihilation at the hands of the whites. The pro-treaty Ridge faction was opposed by fiery John Ross, the leader of the majority National Party, who wanted to stay and fight in the Southeast against all odds.

In this revised edition of his great work, Thurman Wilkins addresses the new scholarship of the past fifteen years and reconsiders the important questions raised by Cherokee history aficionados: Were Major Ridge and John Ridge paid off by the United States for their support of removal? If not, how did these Cherokee patriots come to change their minds about emigrating west? Was Chief John Ross a hero or a villain?

Since Cherokee Tragedy was first published in 1970, it has been valued as a penetrating social and political history of neither the whole Cherokee Nation-nor just the Ridge family- from the last quarter of the eighteenth century to the 1838 Trail of Tears and the subsequent “executionâ? of the Ridges in Indian Territory.

Excellent resource for anyone wanting to understand the background, people, and political events that led up to the Trail of Tears. It contains historical information on the events, as well as information about the culture, language, and beliefs of the Cherokee people at that time that proved relevant to the events the author shares throughout. I couldn't use it as an entirely standalone source of information for my research, but it provided the biggest chunk of it that I needed.

I had to laugh a bit over some of the reviews I've read that griped about the fact this book was predominantly about John Ridge and his involvement in the events of that time. Given that's the subtitle of the book, I have to wonder if those folks actually paid attention to what they were buying. ;-)

Not to technical, written so it is enjoyable to read. Mr. Wilkins makes us aware the the Cherokee are a great people and sad at the way
they were treated.

Enjoyed the book, good job.

lolike
but I found the editing to be very weak with lots of grammatical errors, misspellings, etc which are very distracting. Also, while the writer did a thorough job of presenting the Cherokee situation leading up to the forced evacuation I felt the work lacked scope in regards to the Creeks, Andrew Jackson etc... Perhaps if the writer had tightened his focus on the Ridge family the book wouldn't bog down in long discussions on treaties and the like.

I work at a Cherokee historic site and I highly recommend this book. It reads like a novel and is gripping! By far the most in-depth, unbiased work written on the "Trail of Tears". If you buy no other Cherokee history book, buy this one!
