“This is a story that needs telling. Cherokee Clay speaks of both the hardships and the strength of a people forced from their home as they cling to their identity. A worthy read.”
“Cherokee Clay is a tale about one family’s struggles and triumphs during the forced removal of the Cherokee people and adjusting to life shortly thereafter. The story was fast-paced, held my interest, and is also historically accurate. I cannot wait to read Book Two! ”
“A great story with wonderful characters who struggle with being forcibly removed from their homes. I definitely recommend this book. I will purchase more books from this author. ”
