Pictorial History of Mississippi Trees

"The Cherokee Rose. One of Mississippi's most beautiful wild blossoms and featured by Laura F. Hinsdale in her poem 'Father Davion.' 'and all along his pathway snow-white blossoms grew' 'the petals were like snow flakes, the heart a golden light' 'the white rose of the Cherokees, builded a path of stars.'"
