The Buffalo Ridge Cherokee: A Remnant of a Great Nation Divided


Preliminary chapters give the historical background of the Cherokees, from their first encounters with European settlers through the Revolution and many broken treaties to the infamous Trail of Tears. Other chapters explain how careless record keeping through previous generations has recorded the bi- and tri-racial people of the Buffalo Ridge as white, black, mulatto or free colored without acknowledging the Native American heritage which is the most prevalent of all the racial types in the area. Dr. Rice provides wonderful information about particular families in the area, accumulated through interviews with these families.
