In this book the author, Ellen Cushman, employs an engaging narrative approach to relate how Sequoyah created the syllabary on Cherokee terms, apart fromm Western alphabetic models.  Cushman traces the history of the syllabary and explains the logic of its structure and the graphic relationships among the characters, both of which might have made the system easy for native speakers to use.Hardback
