Allie MacAllister knows better than to run through the woods without a hat. But the sun feels so good on her skin, she barely minds when her mother scolds her for getting as dark as her dog. And Allie knows better than to slip out of Sunday worshipMoreAllie MacAllister knows better than to run through the woods without a hat. But the sun feels so good on her skin, she barely minds when her mother scolds her for getting as dark as her dog. And Allie knows better than to slip out of Sunday worship to visit Leaf Sweetwater. But she hasnt seen her best friend for days, with all the trouble brewing between the Cherokees and the white settlers. Her parents will never notice shes missed the boring sermon if she hurries back. When Leaf lets Allie try on her new buckskin dress, Allie couldnt be happier. But blind hatred shatters her happiness when army men come to round up Leafs family, forcing them from their home--and taking Allie with them to walk the cruel Trail of Tears.As conditions on the trail grow more desperate, the girls hope of rescue fades away, and all thats left is a grueling nightmare of prejudice and terror. Throughout the harrowing journey, Allie and Leaf share each others strength and courage, forging a bond of sisterhood greater than any blood tie.
