Fields of Interest:

I am currently working on a book, The American Republic and the Cherokee Nation--perspectives on the removal of the Cherokee from Appalachia to Oklahoma from the points of view of the federal government, the surrounding states, missionaries, and the Cherokee Nation. I am also interested in questions of violent and non-violent conflict resolution on the Indian frontier.
