Walking the Trail
By

Rating
One fall morning Jerry Ellis donned a backpack and began a long, lonely walk: retracing the Cherokee Trail of Tears, the nine hundred miles his ancestors had walked in 1838. The trail was the agonizing path of exile the Cherokees had been forced to take when they were torn from their southeastern homeland and relocated to Indian Territory. Following in their footsteps, Ellis traveled through small southern towns, along winding roads, amid quiet forests, encountering a memorable array of people who live along the trail today. Along the way he also came to glimpse the pain his ancestors endured and to learn about the true beauty of modern rural life and the worth of a man's character. Jerry Ellis is the author of Bareback! One Man's Journey along the Pony Express Trail, Marching through Georgia: My Walk with Sherman, and Walking to Canterbury.

Reviews

"Come along on the trail with Jerry Ellis. You'll love every step of it." - Tony Hillerman. "Jerry Ellis is an ideal companion for a long ramble along the back roads of America... He introduces us to a collection of characters - some of them welcoming, some of them weird - that are too vivid for mere fiction." - Los Angeles Times. "Ellis, like his Cherokee ancestors, treasures a good story. He writes lucidly, simply, about the people he met and the stories he was told... He walked to discover himself and his ancestors; he came back with stories and with his own lessons." - Denver Post.
