Juvenile Fiction: ages 8 to 12:

“The scenery was wonderful and I loved the action-packed scenes. As sad as the story was, I liked how all the characters were still hopeful and did not give up. We should all have the mentality of these characters. I adored the ending and it warmed my heart! 5 stars.” – Pages for Thoughts reviews

Trail of Tears!

The Cherokee Trail of Tears started in October 1838. About 18,000 Cherokees went west to Oklahoma, about 25% dying on the way. The family in my novel, Stone Man and the Trail of Tears, fled from the soldiers.

The Cherokee Trail of Tears had 3 paths in Kentucky. The northern-most trail passed near Hopkinsville (broken line). The middle trail followed the Tennessee River (blue line). The southern line crossed the Mississippi River at Columbus-Belmont State Park (dark line). The family in my novel, Stone Man and the Trail of Tears, tried to escape from the Trail of Tears.

This is inspired by my great-great grandfather, Bill Pennington, who was born in 1830. During the 1838 Trail of Tears, he and his family fled from their Cherokee village and settled in a rural area a few miles north of Charlestown, Indiana.

Trail of Tears stockade

Fort Marr, Benton Tennessee. This is the last of the numerous stockades built to house Cherokees during the Trail of Tears. This would have been part of a walled fort. The Cherokees in my novel Stone Man and the Trail of Tears escaped from the army to avoid this stockade.

In 1985, I camped 4 nights with my 2 young sons along the Mississippi River at Columbus-Belmont State Park in Columbus, Kentucky. It was a Civil War site, but I was disappointed to learn that the actual battle took place across the river at Belmont Missouri.

I also wanted to visit a site from the Cherokee Trail of Tears. I just learned that the John Benge detachment of 1,100 Cherokees camped here in November 1838. A ferry took them across the Mississippi to Belmont, Missouri, but it took several days. Cherokees camped all over the area, including my camp site (one photo shows the Civil War fortifications where I camped).

Writing material? Yep.
