Cherokee Nation: A History of Survival, Self-Determination, and Identity

"In this survey of Cherokee history, the authors have used select stories and key leaders to trace the challenges and opportunities that have shaped tribal identity. The narrative spans more than four centuries with an emphasis on individual leadership, the struggle for internal unity, and the fight against the forces that attempted to destroy the sovereignty of the Cherokee Nation. Hopefully, the reader will connect the dots of history to gain a better understanding of what it means to be a Cherokee in the Twenty-first Century."

The Land of the Great Turtles

When the Creator gave the Cherokee people a beautiful island with everything they cold ever need, it came with only one rule - to take care of the land and animals living there. But, what happens when the children decide to play instead of taking care of their responsibilities?

The Land of the Great Turtles is a colorful and fun retelling of a well-known Cherokee story, meant to be read aloud - to continue the age-old tradition of sharing between generations.
