Sequoyah was a Cherokee Indian who created a form of writing called a syllabary for his people. During his lifetime, Sequoyah worked on his mother’s farm, fought for the United States Army, and taught many Cherokees about his syllabary. Can you imagine what it was like for him growing up? What kind of a father was he? Read this book to find the answers to these questions and many more. In this book you will learn why Sequoyah could not play games with other Cherokee boys, read about how he used silver coins to make jewelry, and find out how he showed other Cherokees that his syllabary worked.
