Inhaltsangabe: Cherokee Chronicles provides a political history of the people s struggle to adapt as Europeans permanently affected their economy, culture, and government.
In 1540 Hernando de Soto encountered a tribe of self-sufficient people who took from nature what they needed. By the fourth century after first contact, Cherokee leaders were Christian capitalists with a constitutional government. Even after racial bigotry and greed led to the holocaust of the Trail of Tears, the Cherokee re-established the rule of law and set forth on a new pathway for peace and progress.
They surrendered many of the old ways, but they also adapted the ways of the white man as no other native group had ever done. This year-by-year account chronicles the triumph and tragedy as the tribe tries to build a modern nation.
Über den Autor: Joel S. Koenig is a pediatrician practicing in St. Louis, Missouri. He's a graduate of Yale University.
