The creative union of Jacob and Duvall bring forth a collection of Cherokee stories in which the written word is as artistic and visual as the illustrations.

Awarding The Grandmother Stories 7-book collection, the Oklahoma Book Award judges sited, "... this series has carefully and creatively preserved traditional Cherokee legends in a way that should be celebrated and honored." [OBA / 2005]

Published by the University of New Mexico Press, each book in the series is hardbound with cloth cover and exterior color book jacket. Intricate black-ink illustrations adorn each of the 32 pages.

All titles are currently available for purchase direct from Jacob/Duvall, or other fine booksellers.

About the Artists

Jacob & Duvall

Deborah L. Duvall, author, was born and raised in the heart of Cherokee Nation, Tahlequah, Oklahoma where she has lived and worked with the Cherokee Tribe on numerous projects and cultural endeavors over the years. Her in-depth knowledge and love of Cherokee history, tradition, and culture resonate with genuine 'Cherokee' warmth and humor in her authoring of The Grandmother Stories.

In addition to the Grandmother Series, Duvall has authored two non-fiction books; Images of America: The Cherokee Nation & Tahlequah and Voices of America: Tahlequah & the Cherokee Nation.

Murv Jacob, artist / illustrator, a descendant of Kentucky Cherokees, is known for his intricate paintings of Cherokee village scenes, Cherokee people and animal dances. His ample illustrations for these books are as detailed and rich as any of his award-winning paintings.

In the 1990's, Jacob's art career grew to include book and video projects, which now number more than seventy. His publishers include Time Life Books, National Geographic, Harper-Collins, Dial, Parabola, Oklahoma University Press and more.
