  • Brought to life a true unsung hero, sadly neglected in our school systems . A must read for anyone interested in American History.

  • Another great book by Conley!

  • About ten of Robert J. Conley's books ago, I started reading about The Real People when I picked up The Way of the Priests. Each book in the series stands wonderfully alone while at the same time presenting as a part of a much greater whole.

    The Real People live up to their name implicitly. Each character breathes and lives by Conley's carefully-chosen words. Sequoyah plays his significant part in the pantheon of the heroes who precede him--including War Woman and others of her gender who operate on equal terms with the men.

    Sequoyah is a perfect example of a "reluctant hero." He is an ordinary extraordinary man who channels his childhood rage at seeing his village decimated by Europeans into fashioning a masterfully wielded war of the word. Sequoyah is credited with spreading use of the first Cherokee syllabary throughout the Cherokee Nation and he is arguably the syllabary's creator.

    Arduous journeys are characteristic of each novel that I have read about The Real People. That is the case with the heavy, hurting tracks put down by them in their travels along the Trail of Tears. Perhaps Sequoyah's most important journey directs him toward northern Mexico to see if a settlement of Cherokees exists there. I know the answer that this tremendously important book offers and urge you to seek it, too.

  • great book by Robert Conley, War Woman is great too!
