Item 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A pageturner!!!  May 24, 2008
This was a beautiful story based on true events. Armentia is a black Cherokee forced by the government to leave her home and walk the 1000 mile trail of tears. Armentia and others go through so much it is hard to imagine how she or any of the others survived. I gave the story 4 stars because some parts drag a bit but otherwise it was a very enjoyable read.
Shaded & Speckled Skin  Nov 25, 2007
It's an engaging and cultural look at Native American and Black slavery amidst the time of the Trail Of Tears as experienced and narrated by the central character; Armentia. It's very heart breaking and the prose is wise, sure and traditional. It's Christian fiction I'm thoroughly captivated by it. Something worth noting is that even though Armentia goes through more tragedy than not, the author manages to control it and not reach over kill.
Wonderful  Oct 22, 2007
This is a wonderfully written story about a part of our history that is rarely discussed. The author wrote a passionate and engrossing tale that I could not put down. The writting is simple and flows easily. I strongly recommend that everyone read this novel. This is the first novel I have read by this author, but it won't be the last.
Abraham's Well  Jun 27, 2007
Oh, my...there really is not a lot I can add to these other reviews except that IMO, this is simply a beautiful piece of literature. Probably one of the ten most memorable books I have EVER read. Not only is it masterfully written in a way that indeed takes the reader along "the Trail", but it also stays with your heart. I am homeschooling and because of this book, I am completely changing my kids' American History curriculum this Fall. This has moved me to research more true stories of the Trail of Tears, because these stories must be told.
Now this comment probably has no place in an this site book review, but I cannot help but wince & hold down a sort of sad nausea every time I pull a 20 bill out of my wallet & see Jackson's fat head upon it.

Anyway, even if I were to learn nothing, it was an outstanding,
"can't-put-down" read, but simply heartbreaking.

Go ahead and order... you'll want to keep this one rather than return it to the library.
great book  Jun 27, 2007
this was a very good book. I liked to read about the black or mixed experience during this time. I told a lot of my friends/co-workers about this book. They didn't know that blacks were owned by native americans or that they walked the TRAIL OF TEARS.
