Sequoyah: The Cherokee Man Who Gave His People Writing

With appealing illustrations, and spare text translated into Cherokee and English, this tall, lean volume echoes the wishes of Sequoyah who wanted his people "to stand as tall as any people on earth" and helped them do so by resolutely creating a syllabary with which their language could be written. His work created a writing system that made possible reading and writing and preservation of the Cherokee language. The syllabary and a chronology of Sequoyah's life are included in this outstanding biography. Honor Book for Younger Children, 2005.
