This is the 4th book of the Birchbark House series.  This series has been said to be the Native American counterpart to Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House series.  In this entry, Omakayas's son Chickadee is kidnapped and the family set off to find him.  He manages to escape from the Ojibwe camp but he is not safe yet.  He is taken in by a kind priest in an English settlement.  But he finds that the rest of the village may not be so accepting.  As his family searches for him, they must leave their old life behind and begin a new one.
