by Cornelia Cornelissen (Our 50 States, South)
Soft Rain is nine years old when her life changes forever. She and her family are abruptly forced to leave their Cherokee home in North Carolina for relocation in the unknown West. The sorrowful details of this long and dangerous journey, seen from a child’s perspective, are based on the author’s great-grandfather’s experience.
