    With exquisite care, National Book Critics Circle Award winner Louise Erdrich has fashioned a story rich in the way of life and heritage of the Ojibwa people, a story that begs to be told out loud. As each season in a year of Omakayas' life is lovingly portrayed, the satisfying rhythm of her days is shattered when a stranger visits the lodge one night, bringing with him an invisible enemy that will change things forever.

    My children loved listening to this story with me

    Simple gentle. If you like Willa Cather, you'll probably like this. My children loved listening to this story. Good for a long midwest drive.

    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.

    Brilliant

    Well researched, well written, well read! This book, and the entire series that follows Omakayas and her family, is delightful to read or listen to. ..Show More »
