Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Her name is Omakayas, or Little Frog, because her first step was a hop, and she lives on an island in Lake Superior. One day in 1850, Omakayas′s island is visited by a group of mysterious people. From them, she learns that the chimookomanag, or white people, want Omakayas and her people to leave their island and move farther west.

That day, Omakayas realizes that something so valuable, so important that she never knew she had it in the first place, could be in danger: Her way of life. Her home.

Synopsis:

In this captivating sequel to National Book Award nominee "The Birchbark House," Erdrich continues the story of Omakayas, a young Ojibwe girl in the mid 1800s.
