This expertly edited assemblage of the writings of a nineteenth-century American Indian is unique in the collections of American public figures of the times. It is invaluable for understanding the dispossession and removal era of Cherokee history and the uncompromising white expansion that impelled it.
“A thorough, well-presented, and important contribution to scholarship concerning the Cherokees. . . . [T]hose who presume to study Cherokee history during Ross’s lifetime must consult these two volumes and must thank Moulton for having done much of the basic legwork for them.”—Daniel F. Littlefield, Jr., in the Journal of American History
