Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE----------AHYOKA AND THE TALKING LEAVES by Peter and Connie Roop, Illustrated by Yoshi Miyake. Easy, well-written historical fiction. Ahyoka, daughter of Sequoyah, the man who created a written Cherokee language in the early 1800s, is a woman lost in the tide of history. In the Roops' story, she comes to life. She is portrayed as her father's helper and soul mate in his long-term quest, leaving her mother and home to travel with him after he is ostracized and accused of magic. It is Ahyoka who discovers that letters relate to sounds rather than being representative pictures--the key to creating the syllabic alphabet. The authors provide an epilogue of historical facts discovered in their research and a bibliography of adult sources. Miyake's illustrations are rendered with skill and sensitivity, and adequately convey the action. Full-page paintings reproduced in black and white and shades of gray are very effective. Sequoyah and Ahyoka's success in creating a written language for their people provides a heartwarming conclusion to a satisfying story. You are bidding on the stated Lothrop First Edition from 1992. Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (they still crackle) (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. . Paypal is an acceptable alternative. I will ship internationally for additional charges. So bid soon and often for this magnificent, impossible-to-find CHILDREN'S / NATIVE AMERICAN COLLECTIBLE.
