About North Georgia

The Cherokee Removal: A Brief History with Documents by Theda Perdue and Michael D. Green. A excellent compilation of historical documents regarding the Trail of Tears from the preeminent authorities on the subject. This is exactly the kind of book we like, featuring the words of the people involved.

Cherokee Women: Gender and Culture Change, 1700-1835 Ms. Perdue continues to demonstrate her understanding of the Cherokee with this exploration of their complex matrilineal society. Perdue explains the changes in the culture as a result of the changes= going on around them in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Trail of Tears: The Rise and Fall of the Cherokee Nation by John Ehle. A unique storytelling style marks one of the best historical sources of the events leading to the Trail of Tears, but beware, this is deep, intense reading.

Cherokee Tragedy: The Ridge Family and the Decimation of a People by Thurman Wilkins. This book, while covering many of the historical figures of the events, tends to follow Ridge and his effect on the Cherokee Nation.

Cherokee Proud: A Guide for Tracing & Honoring Your Cherokee Ancestors by Tony Mac McClure. Details how to locate information on your Cherokee ancestors

Cherokee Renascence in the New Republic by William G. McLoughlin When people write the history of the Cherokee in Georgia it is understandable that they concentrate on the years leading up to the "Trail of Tears." This tragic event overshadows the history of this Nation, and as William McLoughlin shows us, it is a history rich with acheivement and accomplishment, from the development of a written language by Sequoyah to the adaptation of that language by a majority of the Nation in a 6-month time frame, establishment of a government and newspaper (the Cherokee Phoenix, first American Indian newspaper) and many other accomplishments.

McLoughlin does not pull punches, as many who cover the time period and he does not have an agenda. He accurately recounts the details of the flourishing civilization while describing the evolution of a second society, those who disagreed with the decidedly nationalistic moves of its leaders to protect itself against the desires of the United States and the government of Georgia. Interestingly, Sequoyah was one of the Cherokee against the movement towards nationalism.
