About the Book
Twelve-year old Hanata loves playing around the hills and riverbanks of her prairie home, but the young girl’s life is far from carefree. Everything is connected to the innii, or buffalo, which the Blackfoot people rely on for their food, clothing, and shelter. When a winter storm descends on the land, the buffalo disappear and the people begin to grow hungry. All hope is lost until Hanata has a dream that leads her on a search for a magical stone with the power to bring back the innii.
Also available in hardcover.
