In the fourth book in Erdrich's award-winning Birchbark House series, the focus moves to a new generation. In 1866, when Omakayas' son, Chickadee, eight, is kidnapped, his twin, Makoons, and his family take off across the cold, snowy Great Plains to find Chickadee, who escapes his captors and then encounters white English settlers, including a kind priest who wants to save Chickadee's soul, and racist Christians, who view Indians as pagan "filthy savages." Best for those familiar with the series, the story includes a huge, multigenerational cast of characters, and some readers may have trouble keeping track of who's who. As always, the focus is on the way-of-life details as much as the adventure and on the daily, logistical drama of how the family moves from all that they have known to the Great Plains. Most affecting are the descriptions of Makoons' loneliness without his brother; even in the crowded cabin, "There was empty space that could be filled only by Chickadee." HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Erdrich's literary clout makes any new release a notable event, and the Birchbark House series has a large and growing following. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
