This was my first big novel and I read it as a young girl I have always been interested in native american history I was deeply moved by the story of Tiana Rogers, a young cherokee girl who grew up learning the ways of the medicine woman and eventually was bestowed that honor There is simply too much to write about this book, it is that good It starts when she is in her early teens and ends with her death I loved the story of her love with Sam Houston Whether this story is true or not I don t kn [...]
I was in the library one day looking for an audio book and stumbled upon this story I didn t get it right away and kept looking but couldn t find anything that I was interested in This had caught my eye as it was a story about Native American life right before they were forced onto reservations This author is incredible She certainly did her research on these tribes she creates this story around I learned so much about the inter workings of tribal life It was amazing I even cryed at the end of t [...]
I read this book so long ago that I don t even remember when, but I never forgot the book Lucia St Clair Robson s stories are a mixture of historical fact fiction and are amazing Tiana Rogers lived and breathed, loved, suffered and died while I read this story, and she has remained with me through the years.
one of my favorites
If you want to know something about the Path of Tears of the Indigenous First Nations Peoples of the U.S and some of whom fled also to Canada, this is a great historical fiction that will take you inside.
Another wonderful, historical novel this time about the Cherokee Indians and a woman loved by Sam Houston It s a beautiful love story that earned me a lot of respect from my high school history teacher who didn t believe me when I shared this side of Sam Houston with him After doing some research, he confirmed that I was right This heartbreaking love story covers cultural issues and gets the heart to once again question the rights taken by the white man in his horrible treatment of another group [...]
It was a struggle for me to listen to Walk In My Soul because I do know what happened on the Trail of Tears and how the local tribes were treated I enjoyed spending time with Tiana and the Cherokee I also enjoyed Sam s time with the Cherokee until his brothers came ruined the idyll I came to care for the characters, but I did give up on the audiobook during the second part, The Night Land, because I didn t want Tiana, her family, and her friends to suffer I do look forward to reading by Lucia S [...]
A great but sad read A lot of research went into to this book that depicts the life of Tiana Rogers, a Half Cherokee girl woman and Sam Houston, how their lives intertwined, and the horrific story of the removal of the Cherokee from their land to the Oklahoma Territory The heartbreak to the trail of tears or the trail where they cried, where thousands of Native Americans died, after being betrayed, yet again by our government.
Read this and you will hate Andrew Jackson for all eternity I am no fan of Sam Houston either The attrocities that were carried out against the Cherokee Indians makes me ashamed Why is Andrew Jackson on our currency He commited genocide Don t get me started A great book though, If you like to get depressed and angry and rant like a lunatic.
I loved this book I am still thinking about it I was amazed while reading this story how similar the exile of the Indians were to the early LDS Saints They were both forced from their homes by white man who coveted their land They were persecuted for their beliefs Eventually driven thousands of miles from their home land to start over again while losing many lives along the way.
This book about the Trail of Tears made me cry According to family tradition there is a grandmother I am not sure how many greats who was Cherokee It was an interesting window on this sad chapter in American History.
One of those books that spends hundreds of pages developing background and characters, only to have the climax of the story wrap up in 20 pages I enjoyed the story, but the conclusion of the book felt rushed and incomplete Still worth the read She is a phenomenal author.
Beautifully written and very interesting story of Sam Houston and his Cherokee wife If you love historical novels you might enjoy this one I didn t know much about Sam Houston and did not know he live and was adopted by the Cherokees Good book.
This book may be to date my all time favorite book Historical fiction and romance, this book really has it all, I don t think it s still in print, otherwise all my friends would have a copy for Christmas.
This wasn t as exciting to read as Ride the Wind , but it was enjoyable I am not sure how true to reality this is as Samual Huston is concerned, but it was interesting to read about important people of our American History and see them as the normal people they were I cried at the end.
Another wonderful classic.
