WDM Publishing is proud to announce a new Spun Yarns short story. This month we’re featuring a historical tale. Debbie Mumford takes us on a thought provoking journey into a past many of us would rather forget as she brings to life one young woman’s experience on the Trail of Tears – the forced march of the Cherokee nation from their home in what is now Georgia to the Indian Territory that became Oklahoma.
THE TRAIL WHERE WE CRIED
by Debbie Mumford
Audience: Historical Fiction | General Audience | Short Story
A Cherokee maiden narrates her experiences on the Trail of Tears, of being torn from her home in Georgia in the spring of 1838 and force-marched to Tahlequah in the Indian Territory – which would later become the State of Oklahoma.
