Sequoyah - Cover
James Rumford, Houghton Mifflin Company Boston 2004
In Cherokee and English, this beautifully-illustrated book tells the story of Sequoyah, who invented a written form for the Cherokee language - not once, but twice! With great courage, imagination and intelligence, he persisted over the objections of his own people (in the beginning) and over the white community. His invention made possible the recording of Cherokee wisdom by the Cherokee people. The great redwoods are named in his honor. (Translated by Anna Sixkiller Huckaby)
