"The Cherokee language was spoken in North America thousands of years before the arrival of Europeans, and is still used today by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in the mountains of North Carolina. However, this fascinating language is now in jeopardy, with the final generation to learn the language at home now reaching middle age and the number of native speakers dwindling. In addition to long-standing efforts by tribal schools and a summer language camp, a total immersion preschool and elementary school offer fresh hope that the Cherokee people may retain this vital component of their history and heritage. FIRST LANGUAGE documents the extraordinary fight to rescue the very heart of Cherokee identity." -- Back cover
