Content descriptions

General Note: Includes a glossary of Ojibwe terms.
Sequel to: Chickadee (2012).
Summary, etc.: Named for the Ojibwe word for little bear, Makoons and his twin, Chickadee, have traveled with their family to the Great Plains of 1860s Dakota Territory. There they must learn to become buffalo hunters and once again help their people make a home in a new land. But Makoons has had a vision that foretells great challenges -- challenges that his family may not be able to overcome. (Based on the author's own family history.)

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 April #2
    Makoons, the twin brother of Chickadee (for whom the last book in the Birchbark House series was titled), takes center stage in this fifth installment. But though the preteen is in the spotlight, the story really revolves around his whole Ojibwe family, a multigenerational clan now living on the Great Plains of Dakota Territory in 1866. Life is different from what the family originally knew along the lakes and rivers of the area now known as Minnesota, but much of the day-to-day work is unchanged. As she has done previously, Erdrich lingers on mundane details of life: the planting of gardens, tanning of hides, and preparing of food. There is one difference on the Plains—the buffalo is king—and Makoons and Chickadee must learn to become buffalo hunters. Along with that action, great character sketches emerge: tough-as-nails Two Strike, who wouldn't even raise her own child, is captivated by a little lamb, while preening Gichi Noodin goes from conceited young hunter to humble suitor. Erdrich's direct narrative voice brings readers right into Makoons' world. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A new addition to the Birchbark House saga, launched in 1999, is always an anticipated event, and Chickadee (2012) won the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction.
