A Modern-Day Cherokee Tale

A little boy plants an apple seed, already envisioning

the big apple tree it will someday be.  But when its  first fall comes and goes, and apples fail to appear on its branches the little tree begins to doubt its calling. 

How can the little boy find the encouragement

needed to convince the young tree to give the seasons and years the time to work their magic? 

A debut book by Cherokee author Sandy Tharp -Thee told in English with Cherokee translation. The book

includes a Cherokee syllabary, with illustrations by

Oklahoma artist Marlena Campbell Hodson.
