You've brought their story to life... I LOVE how you fulfilled the phrase, "Historian of a Future Day." Excellent work!

My family history is tinted by The Trail of Tears. You have written well, of bygone days.

You've etched this tale into my mind forever. So very well told and so very well received. I only wish all children of every race could have such an experience.

This brought tears to my eyes and a blush to my facxe. You really drew me in and I was very much apart of your story, reminding myself of who had lived on the land my house is on is a humbling thought. I live just a few miles from Mary Jemison's grave and do not remember the loss so that I might live here often enough. Thank you for opening my eyes once again.

A powerful telling of a sad and grave injustice to a select group of people. Your excellent writing brought the main scene of this story to life--and it touched me deeply. I shall look for this one in the winners list.

This was such a beautifully-told sad tale, a blight in our American history. Not because of the true native Americans, but because of the way our immigrant ancestors treated them. Well told, this was a emotionally gripping story.
