Only the Names Remain

by Alex W. Bealer

This one's a short little non-fiction book, subtitled "The Cherokees and the Trail of Tears." That's about the size of it. The book gives a short description of the Cherokee nation and how they adapted to the arrival of the Europeans. It also briefly tells the tale of how the descendants of those Europeans totally screwed the Cherokees and forced them to move away from their homeland under truly awful conditions. As I was reading the book, it made me wish that the British had won the Revolutionary War. Anyway, I would only rate this as waiting room material, even though this is a part of American history that should be told. I suppose it's better than nothing.
