The story "The Birchbark House" by Louise Erdrich takes place in Lake Superior in 1847. The story is about Omakayas who is 7 years old who is moving to another camp because of what they do each fall. On a cold winter night, a mysterious man knocks at Omakayas' cabin. He presents Omakaya and her family a "friend" of his which is really an invisible person. But as the story moves on Omakaya learns some family history of her ancestors. On a rating of 1-5, 5 being the best, I would give it a 3 because it was really intense once she learned a secret. The only bad thing was the conclusion and climax because none of the 2 didn't make sense at all. I would recommend this book to people who like a mix of mystery, history, and a brief amount of comedy. This book is 241 pages long.
