In this fifth book in the Birchbark House series, Chickadee has returned and Makoons is finally healing after his long illness. The twins are learning to live in their new home on the Dakota plains, a big difference from the woods of what is now Minnesota. I suggest reading the first four books before this one in order to have a better sense of the family’s saga. This is a must read series, especially for fans of the Little House on the Prairie series. Highly recommended for grades 4 & up.
