    Paperback Description:

    I have discovered there’s Indian in my family heritage…. The time is 1838. Armentia pointed to a well on the land their Cherokee master owns. "It seems hard to believe now, son, but someday we’ll have our own land. Land with a well just like this one…." Inspired by true events, authentic slave narratives, and other historical accounts, Abraham’s Well is the profoundly moving story of the Black Cherokee—African Americans, both slave and free—who, along with native people, walked the Trail of Tears. It is the story of their forced removal from the Southeast to Indian Territory—-modern day Oklahoma—and of the courage and faith of one woman as she struggles to overcome her desperate circumstances. And it is the story of an author who, in researching and writing, found her own way home.
