Sharpe, J. Ed,
The Cherokees - Past and Present:an auathentic guide to the Chrerokee People.
Cherokee, NC, Cherokee Publications, 1976. 4th prntg. VG PB. Owner name on title page. Nearly 10,000 years ago the forefathers of the Cherokee made their way from Asia to this. continent.over a narrow strip of land now covered by the Bering Strait they wandered into North America as nomadic tribes following herds of prehistoric animals and seeking to keep hemselves alive. Spreading southward like a gigantic fan of humanity, these tribes continue to populate most of North America differing in appearance, language, and customs eventually to call certain areas of this new continent their home. it is believed that the Cheokees and Iroquois are brother tribes having come from the same source. They are known fr their superior height and robust stature. Claiming for their hunting grounds what is now parts of 8 states The Cherokees became the mightiest Indian Empire of all the Southeastern Tribes. graduatlly their towns grew up near the mouths of small streams where clear water was plentiful. When the first white man Hern ando De Soto came into Cherokee country in the 16th cenury there were about 25,000 Cherokees. This Spanish adventurer coming into the Cherokee mountain territory in search of gold began the long and painful march of the white man into the Cherokee world. This influx pushed hard against the Cherokees' world from 1684 to 1835. Consistently broken the Cherokee history shrank to a small boundare in Western North Carolina. In 1838-39 the Cherokee were forced to move to Oklahoma where over 4,000 died on the "Trail of tears.".

North American Indians: myths and legends series.
NY, Avenel Books, (1986). 2nd prntg. Fine in Fine DJ. Before the arrival of the Europeans, more than 300 tribal groups lived iin the forests, mountains and plains of North. America. In countless tepeees across the wide expanse of the North American continent the Indian storytellers filled the hours of darkness with tales of myth and magic that held their audiences spellbound The stories were more than entertainment, they were an essential part of a culture based on a common understanding of mankind's place in nature. As such the mythology was inseparable from the ceremonise and beliefs of the tribes. In many such as the Navajjo, the mythology was inextricably bound with tribal ceremonal and beliefs, dancers who donned masks to represent gods thereby assumed the spiritual strengths associated with them.
