In 1840, Libby, living with her family on the Michigan frontier, finds herself inadvertently caught up in the forced evacuation of a group of Potawatomi Indians from their tribal lands.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
The winter of 1840 was a snowy tunnel. We entered it in November and couldn't find our way out until April. Then spring surprised us. Almost overnight the white field by our cabin turned back into a pond. When Mama saw the last of the ice melt, she said to me, "Libby, it's like something heavy lifting from my heart."

Black-and-white bufflehead ducks sifted down onto our pond. The blue heron was back stalking frogs. One morning we heard the oriole sing and saw it flash through the trees. Papa unraveled rope and hung the strands over branches. The oriole carried off the strands in its beak to weave into a nest that hung like a little bag at the top of an oak.

Publisher Description:
Based on true accounts of the Potawatomi Indians' forced migration from Michigan territory in 1840, this sequel to
Next Spring an Oriole portrays the friendship between two families - one white, one Native American.
