Story Summary

When a young girl visits her Native-American grandfather, she is surprised to find that the river sings to her and that her grandfather catches fish with his hands. Simple, really. Just listen to the river and think like a fish. But when she falls in she comes face to face with a fish that looks an awful lot like her grandfather.
