The story of the desperate efforts of the Cherokees to hold their country against an ever growing army of white settlers. The Great White Father guaranteed their lands "as long as the sun shines and the rivers run," a promise broken again and again by the white settlers and ultimately led to the removal of the Cherokees over the Trail of Tears, the "darkest blot on our country's history." - dustjacket flap.
