Product Description The super-seller memoir of a Cherokee boyhood in the 1930s. The most sensitive and evocative autobiographical account ever of the Cherokee way, as seen through the eyes of a young boy in the Appalachian Mountains.
The debate as to whether Carter was indian or not merely detracts from the story. There is no one who can read this book and not spot the truth within as well as having been there themselves. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and have recommended it numerous times.
