How far are you from Cherokee?

And Still the Waters Run
It paints a clear picture of the Native American betrayals, October 1, 1999

Reviewer: A reader from Stillwater, OK
Angie really tells it like it was. She uncovered all of the horrible truths from the basement of the Interior. This book tells all about what they wouldn't teach in school, and the government cover-ups. I recommend this book to everyone who is interested in the truth.
