Soft Rain: a story of the Cherokee Trail of Tears
By Cornelia Cornelissen
Soft Rain is 9 years old when her life changes. Without warning, white soldiers arrive at her house. They command Soft Rain and her mother to come with them, taking only the possessions they can instantly pack and carry. They are forced to leave behind Soft Rain's blind grandmother, her father and brother, and even her puppy. This is the inspiring story of Soft Rain's courage and determination.
