Story Summary

Joey,a Turtle Mountain Ojibwe, has difficulty reading until he spends a summer on the North Dakota reservation where he learns the Ojibwe language. With the power of his ancestral language along with his love for sky-watching, he realizes he can read, just in a different way, like his Ojibwe ancestors, he can read the sky.
