about this item

A year in the life of a 7-year-old Ojibwa girl named Omakayas. The only survivor of a smallpox epidemic on Spirit Island, Omakayas was taken in by an Ojibwa family living on Lake Superior's Madeline Island when she was just a baby. She has many happy times with her adopted family in their cozy birchbark house, especially with her baby brother, Neewo. Then smallpox enters Omakayas's life once again. Readers will learn about the daily life of the Ojibwa as they read about Omakayas's adventures. Louise Erdrich, the author, is a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwa, and this story is partially based on her own family history.
