Description

A Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People and recipient of the Florida Sunshine Award: In this absorbing chapter book, Ahyoka helps her father, Sequoyah, unlock the mystery of “talking leaves” to create the Cherokee alphabet

Ahyoka is the daughter of Sequoyah, a silversmith who has given up most of his trade to focus on his true passion. He longs for the day when the Cherokee people can communicate to one another from afar and document the history of their lives. He wants his people—the Real People—to have a written language like the white men do.
 
When he is ostracized from his community for the “magic” he is creating, he leaves his home to pursue his quest. His young daughter, who shares his dream, joins him on his journey. They work together to create a syllabic alphabet that will tell the story of the Cherokee people.

Ahyoka’s charcoal flew across the sycamore bark.

Would Father understand her picture? Sometimes he knew what her drawings meant. Other times he did not. When she had drawn her best buffalo, he had thought it was a cow.

For two summers and two winters Ahyoka and her father, Sequoyah, had been drawing pictures for the Tsalagi people’s words. The Cherokee had so many words, and she and Sequoyah had to draw a picture for every one of them. The stack of drawings in the corner reached Ahyoka’s chin. Yet she felt
