All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

In the early 1800s, white settlers and missionaries were intent on bringing the English language to the illiterate Native Americans. Sequoyah was intrigued by these leaves of paper with strange marks that talked. Doing what no one had ever done before, Sequoyah set about creating a written Cherokee languageā€”helping preserve the tribe's history and culture even today.

These plays could be done as readers' theater or staged as a full dramas, although the dialogue is stilted in both. In Gourd, two fugitive slaves learn about the Underground Railroad. Sequoyah makes clear the historical significance of a syllabary for the Cherokee language. The prosaic illustrations may offer costume and setting ideas. Reading list, websites. Glos.
