The Cherokee is a juvenile literature title in the Native Americans series published by ABDO Publishing. The series contributing editor is Barbara Kanatiiosh Gray, a member of the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation. The series is designed to appeal to students in grade 3 to 5, and each title covers the culture and history of the particular Nation. In this title, the author describes the traditional homeland of the Cherokee people. A helpful map shows the traditional homelands as part of the Appalachian Mountains of eastern United States. Simple two-page chapters cover society (government), homes, food, clothing, crafts, family life, children, myths, war, contact with Europeans, and the Cherokee today. The final section describes Cherokee efforts to maintain their cultural heritage. This book also introduces students to an important Cherokee leader, Sequoyah, who invented the Cherokee alphabet. Throughout the text there are numerous full-colour and photos as well as detailed illustrations by David Kanietakeron Fadden, a graphic artist from the Mohawk Nation. The book also includes a glossary of terms, which appear in the text in boldface, 4 website recommendations, and an index. This book is carefully written for young readers who want to find out how the Cherokee lived. It is accurate and bias-free. This series should be available in all school and public libraries.
