Trail of Tears....

Trail of Tears by Joseph Bruchac is an easy reader I chose as a brief overview of the Cherokee Nation migration in 1838.  As white settlers moved west, the Cherokee Tribe was forced from their land.  They traveled 1,200 miles to Oklahoma.  In the photo above,  you can see Riley's map which she chose to draw to accompany her copywork.
