John's grandfather tells him about something very special; he tells him about the unbreakable code—the code that saved the lives of thousands of Americans in the Pacific during World War II, invented using the then unwritten Navajo language.

Available in paperback only.  The Unbreakable Code, by Sara Hoagland Hunter.  Color illustrations by Julia Miner.  Rising Moon Books, 1996.

John is scared. His mom married the man from Minnesota, and now he has to leave the Navajo Reservation. John has never lived off the Reservation. What will it be like? How will he measure up to the people who live outside of the Four Sacred Mountains?

But John's grandfather tells him he will be all right, for he has something very special to take with him; he has the unbreakable code—the code that saved the lives of thousands of Americans in the Pacific during World War II, invented using the then unwritten Navajo language.
