The Cherokee Kid
Will Rogers, Tribal Identity, and the Making of An American IconBook - 2015
Ware's book challenges the common view that famous Oklahoman humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935) was disengaged from his Cherokee roots and/or that those roots were superfluous at best. Amy Ware, on the contrary, argues that Rogers's legitimate Cherokee heritage remained a self-defining aspect of his life, his work, and his principles.
