Sarah, a young motherless girl, lives with her father on the shores of Lake Winnipeg. Conditions were terrible at first, and without the help of the native people living at Sand River, the family would have died. In return, when the native people were striken with smallpox, the family took them in and did what they could for them.

This haunting tale set at the end of the last century illustrates the dependence of New World settlers on the native people , but goes beyond to create a Hans Christian Anderson - like world where magic , beauty and sadness mix.
