Read in November, 2008

The Birchbark House follows a family of Anishinabe through one year, from summer to spring, through the eyes of an eight year old girl, Omakayas. Highlights are the illness that plagues the family in the winter, and the growing awareness of Omakayas' destiny. Bears also figure prominently in the story. Although geared toward a young audience, adults will find the imagery and POV character compelling.
