The Cherokee Rose
The Cherokee Rose, written by Tiya Miles, award-winning historian and recipient of a recent MacArthur Genius Grant, explores territory reminiscent of the works of Alice Walker, Octavia Butler, and Louise Erdrich. This luminous but highly accessible work examines a little-known aspect of America s past slaveholding by Southern Creeks and Cherokees and its legacy in the lives of three young women who are drawn to the Georgia plantation where scenes of extreme cruelty and equally extraordinary compassion once played out.

The characters in The Cherokee Rose include Jinx, the free-spirited historian exploring her tribe s complicated racial history; Ruth, whose mother sought refuge from a troubled marriage in her beloved garden and the cosmetic empire she built from its bounty; Cheyenne, the Southern black debutante seeking to connect with a meaningful personal history; and, hovering above them all, the...

She was born on an Oklahoma ranch, where her father taught her to rope and ride. Filled with daydreams of joining Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, Tommy Jo Burns knew she was destined for greatness as a famous trick roper. At fourteen, she so impressed President Theodore Roosevelt that he dubbed her America's first cowgirl. But this auspicious beginning forced the hardest choice, leaving her parents and sheltered ranch life to create her own family of friends on the road with Colonel Zack Miller's 101 Ranch Show. It was a new and exciting life, and she took her name from the prairie wildflower that matched her restless spirit: Cherokee Rose.From headlining at Madison Square Garden to surviving disasters in the ring, and from performing for English royalty to competing in a rodeo, her adventures brought different men into her world: the shy, awkward ranch hand Billy Rogers, who emerged on the show circuit as Will Rogers; a handsome husband who resented her fame; a wealthy gambler who taught her - too late - to follow her heart's instincts. Always striving to achieve her dreams and never willing to settle for less, Cherokee Rose became one of the most celebrated women of the West.

My Cherokee Rose
Usually, the death of a loved one soon ends or at least reduces their influence on those they leave behind. Not so with Maddie Whitehead Ryeton. A single red rose in a funeral bud vase, and the bequeath of a used, taped-up USPS box with JENNI scrawled in her grandmother’s handwriting, pique the young girl’s curiosity. Were they related? How? She sets out to find the answer. Where would that search take her? With her deceased, scheming grandmother’s blessing and a phone number, she heads to Meadowview, Kentucky, and into a family filled with Christ’s love.
