I want to learn more about the Cherokee peoples. What is the best book or books to read? I would also like some illustrations of how they would have looked in the early to mid 1770's.

well first i would subscribe to the journal of Cherokee studies .
I would also recommend
The Cherokee Nation: A history by Robert J Conley ..
The first is a rather in depth study and the second is a more general overview .
Both however will give you references or leads to advance you study

Get a copy of Emma Lila Fundaburk's Southeastern Indians: Life Portraits. The images are in black and white, but it's probably the best single source of images for the southeastern peoples, including Cherokees.

Hey there friend,

If you can find a copy of "Memoirs of Lieutenant Henry Timberlake 1756-1765" it would give you some good ideas. I know it's not exactly the time period you mentioned, but it is first hand accounts of the "Tsalagi" early on.

I've got a copy myself. I found it at a craft show in Berea, KY years ago. You might be able to find it through some antique book sellers.

Good Luck,

Rodger
