9780064410298: The Game of Silence (Birchbark House)

Her name is Omakayas, or Little Frog, because her first step was a hop, and she lives on an island in Lake Superior. One day in 1850, Omakayas′s island is visited by a group of mysterious people. From them, she learns that the chimookomanag, or white people, want Omakayas and her people to leave their island and move farther west.

That day, Omakayas realizes that something so valuable, so important that she never knew she had it in the first place, could be in danger: Her way of life. Her home.

About the Author:

Louise Erdrich is the author of fifteen novels as well as volumes of poetry, children’s books, short stories, and a memoir of early motherhood.

The Plague of Doves won the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and her debut novel, Love Medicine, was the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award.

She lives in Minnesota with her daughters and is the owner of Birchbark Books, a small independent bookstore.

From AudioFile:

Anna Fields's lucid narration introduces Omakayas (Little Frog), her family, her Ojibwe tribe, and her life on an island in Wisconsin's Lake Superior in 1850. Fields brings the vibrant tale, with overtones of the classic narrative poems HIAWATHA and EVANGELINE, to life, making it timely and accessible and reflecting the innocent, playful, and wonderful world of children, families, and pets in any time or place. While the title is designated for children, I'd recommend this captivating listening experience for adults as well. As the reading ends poignantly, be prepared to discuss the material with young listeners. Packaging is attractive and helpful, with chapter titles and listening times on each disc.
