Sequoyah

Robert J. Conley, Author St. Martin's Press $22.95 (240p) ISBN 978-0-312-28134-2
As Robert J. Conley (Spanish Jack, etc.) points out in an author's note to Sequoyah: A Novel of the Real People, little is known for certain about the great Cherokee leader, who was born late in the 18th century. Most believe he was the first to create a Cherokee alphabet and written language, and it is this feat that Conley (of Cherokee ancestry himself) documents in his sympathetic and convincingly detailed portrait of the enigmatic hero. Conley's prose and dialogue can be a little stiff, but few writers are better equipped to attempt a fictional version of Sequoyah's life.
