"The Trail of Tears was not a one-time event, but actually a 2-decade policy of relocating Native Americans to the West in forced marches. Young readers will learn history through the fictional journal entries of Awenasa, a young Cherokee girl. This book communicates history through powerful emotions, encouraging readers to thoughtfully reflect on the plight of the natives of North America. Fact boxes throughout the text illuminate important historical points. At the end of the book, a table of powerful statistics exposes the incredible reality of these heartbreaking decades in American history."
