Her name is Omakayas, or Little Frog, because her first step was a hop, and she lives on an island in Lake Superior. It is 1850 and the lives of the Ojibwe have returned to a familiar rhythm: they build their birchbark houses in the summer, go to the ricing camps in the fall to harvest and feast, and move to their cozy cedar log cabins near the town of LaPointe before the first snows.

The satisfying routines of Omakayas's days are interrupted by a surprise visit from a group of desperate and mysterious people. From them, she learns that all their lives may drastically change. The chimookomanag, or white people, want Omakayas and her people to leave their island in Lake Superior and move farther west. Omakayas realizes that something so valuable, so important that she never knew she had it in the first place, is in danger: Her home. Her way of life.

In this captivating sequel to National Book Award nominee The Birchbark House, Louise Erdrich continues the story of Omakayas and her family.

    " Erdrich writes for both adult and young person readers and this book is one aimed for teenagers. It is based on her own family history as a member of the Ojibwa nation and set in the 19th century. The book tells the stories of the young people living on an island and how they are trained in the age old ways of the tribe. This is a fascinating account and told in a way that informs and entertains "

    " I love this series! Erdrich says that she really becomes her characters to write from their viewpoint, and it's clear in these books. So richly researched, but the writing feels so comfortable at the same time. Can't wait to read more! "
