Summary "This work examines presidential policies, the cultural and community splits within the "Five Civilized Nations" (Creek, Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw and Seminole) and the various ways in which Indians attempted to maintain their ethnic identity during their traumatic removal. It provides a window into the thoughts and attitudes of those on both sides of the controversy"--Provided by publisher.
