"The Trail Where They Cried"This sculpture is a small piece of theater, a tableau to engage the spectator in the heartbreak of the Cherokee walking west on the two routes of the Trail of Tears that crossed in Pulaski. Fear, suffering, survival, and resolve are expressed within the postures and facial expressions of each human being. The young girl tugs the mother's sleeve, pleading to go home. Her dog stops to sense if they will return. The weary mother is torn between the girl's longing and the future of the baby. The man, barefoot and in tattered clothes, walks westward with dignity and the determination to survive. The trail is rough and pitted with the ruts of wagon wheels, hoof prints and footprints of others. The footprints on the trail were made by casting the actual footsteps of two Cherokee people.
