   Decent but very dumbed down
I bought this book in the hopes that it would provide that first hand account on the trail. The book is, however, so much deceived that it is painful to read. Example : A woman who has been forced to leave her home after several months pregnant, sees her grandfather shot and her father is missing. The author says that this character is disappointed. I'd say that she was devastated, hurting, angry, and exhausted. Kids experience real emotional pain and should hear words to help describe real pain.
   We can get together
Fhdhd mud of all our people in this area that are not yet in our country and so I don 't know how they would get the kids in this way, so that they are just passing through.
   A Must-Read
I was connected to Mary completely and emotionally. This historical fiction story about how the Cherokee Nation was robbed of their homes, incarcerated and forced to march 1000 miles to their new homes made me realize that what I was taught in school was wrong in so many ways. My heart was lifted and then broke at the end of the story with hope for Mary and her family.
   A Heartbreaking Must Read!
When I first held the book and saw how small it was, I thought it was a book on learning how to read, because it had only ten chapters. Though the story has a happy ending, it is the sadness of The Trail of Tears Lingers. Mary's grandson is shot! Ms. Tsalli dies of a mysterious illness! This is the best-selling book I ever read! I was not convinced by the happy ending and asked Andrea L. Rogers, who had followed me on Twitter, what happens after the trail of Tears to Mary and her family? Some such thing would cause depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc. Mary will you and her family be OK? She replied, Mary grew up a very powerful woman who lived a long life. After that answer, I am free to imagine Mary doing what she wanted in life!
   Fast-paced story full of heart (and truth)
Y 'all have fun! This book is in English. I cry because every bit is true. It hurts to know that this was the reality of so many Native American tribes in the United States. She is brave, full of heart and loves her family and community with a sweet passion. What she and her family endures is heartbreaking and heart wrenching, but there are also small pockets of joy. The author does a fantastic job with pacing, making sure young readers are engaged. This book is age appropriate, has a succinct and informative authors - notes, glossary, and a few critical thinking questions to help readers engage even more.
