Kah-nung-da-tla-geh-the great Cherokee chieftain known as the Ridge-was born with one foot in each of the two worlds. The first was that of his ancestors, the great Cherokee Nation, who once settled across the lower plains, their culture flourishing, their position secure. But the arrival of the white man changed life as the Ridge knew it forever, ushering in a new world of forced change, war, death, and misery. It was the Ridge's visionary leadership that led the Cherokee into the future as one nation-with a culture at once unique and adaptable to the white man's. But as the white tide continued to flood the plains, the Ridge's judgment would be questioned, tested, and ultimately flung aside in favor of war-and his contribution to the survival of the Cherokee Nation forgotten on the infamous Trail of Tears. Until now . . .
