Crossing to America - on foot! Thousands of years ago a tribe settled along the edge of Siberia. When a massive tsunami wipes out most of them, the survivors head north seeking a long-lost band of cousins and some semblance of normalcy. But 11 year old Birdy doesn't want normal; she dreams of telling the sacred tales no girl is permitted to tell. Other clansmen harbor their own secrets. Her aunt longs to be noticed by the man everyone fears and scorns. Uncle Rein is pushed into leadership, though he doubts he has the skill. The brave hunter K'enemy hides a dark past which could tear apart the fragile community. Antler is the only one trained to lead the ceremonies and intercede with the spirits, yet he is still a child himself. These unforgettable characters and others join to make a remarkable expedition across Siberia, a journey that will bind them together as a people and take them to a new continent - if they are careful, and lucky enough to survive.
