This audiobook reminds us that those who precede us are often forgotten--or their stories are never told from their perspective. The Black Creek Nation, whose history includes the ownership of slaves and the granting of full citizenship to Black tribespeople, is one such group. Their gripping history, including conflict both internal and external, is delivered with passion by author Caleb Gayle. The highlight of the book is Gayle's examination of tribal leader Cow Tom, whose descendants were granted U.S. citizenship, only to have it revoked a century later in the 1970s. The stories are fascinating, and Gayle's narration brings every aspect of the Creek world to life. D.J.S.
