In 1852, forced by the United States government to leave their beloved island home, 12-year-old Omakayas and her Ojibwe family travel in search of a place to live. Heading north in hopes of joining Omakayas' aunt in a new settlement, the family faces violent raids, freezing weather, and near-starvation -- but they never lose hope. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
