If you enjoy a touch of history the way I do along with an adventure then take a look.

STONE MAN AND THE TRAIL OF TEARS
By Charles Suddeth
The story takes place in the fall of 1838 when U. S. soldiers appear at twelve-year-old Tsati’s village and start burning the Cherokees’ homes. The family attempts to escape to freedom. From then on, we follow the family as they live a part of history, later known as the Civil War, that separated families and left many innocent people dead.
The author does a great job showing the fear and uncertainty the characters feel as they struggle to reach safety in what came to be called the Trail of Tears, a fitting name for what the people went through. Imagine yourself in their situation, losing their home, their family separated, not knowing what lay ahead, only that they could not go back to their homes. And then there’s the Stone Man. Who is he? You'll find out.
STONEMAN AND THE TRAIL OF TEARS is a good read for history lovers and for readers who enjoy a great story with characters that touch your heart, at least they did mine. Happy Reading.
