The Porcupine Year (Birchbark House). Louise Erdrich has given a new generation of readers much of these same reading experiences, but has managed to tell it in the voice of a non-"chimookoman," or white person. No, this eight year old narrator is vastly different from Laura.

The Birchbark House is a 1999 indigenous juvenile realistic fiction novel by Louise Erdrich, and is the first book in a five book series known as The Birchbark series. The story follows the life of Omakayas and her Ojibwe community beginning in 1847 near present-day Lake Superior.

Five days passed and there was nothing to eat. Deydey sang his spirit songs until he was hoarse, hoping to conjure an animal near or at least pluck up their courage. Deydey sang his spirit songs until he was hoarse, hoping to conjure an animal near or at least pluck up their courage oods for dried berries, more squirrel caches. Omakayas swallowed her pride and asked Quill to help her set snares. But it seemed some magic was upon the land, making animals scarce as ghosts. The porcupine had gone to sleep in a hollow log, a place that only Quill knew about. He was suspicious of Old Tallow, who had joked once about eating his medicine animal.

Richly imagined, full of laughter and sorrow, The Porcupine Year continues Louise Erdrich's celebrated series, which began with The Birchbark House, a National Book Award finalist, and continued with The Game of Silence, winner of the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction.

Here follows the story of a most extraordinary year in the life of an Ojibwe family and of a girl named "Omakayas," or Little Frog, who lived a year of flight and adventure, pain and joy, in 1852.

When Omakayas is twelve winters old, she and her family set off on a harrowing journey. They travel by canoe westward from the shores of Lake Superior along the rivers of northern Minnesota, in search of a new home. While the family has prepared well, unexpected danger, enemies, and hardships will push them to the brink of survival. Omakayas continues to learn from the land and the spirits around her, and she discovers that no matter where she is, or how she is living, she has the one thing she needs to carry her through.

My 10 year old son and I have been reading this series for about a year and a half - no longer as a nightly bedtime story as we did with other books when he was younger, but in moments grabbed out of our increasingly busy days. One of us reads a bit ahead, the other catches up, and I've had to restrain him from spoiling the book for me many times. As we reached the end of this third book, I felt sure that there was another following it.. and I don't know what to do now that there isn't!

This series is a must-read, full of emotion and details of the life of survival that all of our ancestors led. We've cried many times as beloved characters have been lost or betrayed.. we've marveled at human ingenuity. I sincerely hope that the author is still working on the continuation... we need to see Omakayas grow up and meet her destiny as she saw it in the Game of Silence.

These are such beautiful, clean, moving novels.. if only there were more books like this to expand children's hearts and introduce them to the reality of life.

Picked this for my kid's for they're AR reading. I bought it because they're Native American's and it's hard to find a book that shows a more "real" picture of the daily life and struggles of the Native American's of the past that young people find interesting and will read on their own. It's hard to find AR books at their level that will keep them hooked so that they'll finish it on their own because they like it, not because they "have" to read it. I like how the author shares Omakaya's, the young girl and also the main character, feelings and how she struggles with good and bad thoughts like all kid's do but also what she does about them. So far I've seen 2 of my 5 girl's open it on their kindles. They tell me it's "pretty good" which means they like it too.

I loved all 4 of the Birchbark series books. They were written for children, but within the stories was a lot of material about the Ojibwe culture. It, as well as the other 3 of the series, was a clean interesting story which could be read independently, but is best if read in the sequence of the series. The series convey the pain of having to move from where you have lived a long time. Louise Erdrich is a great writer even though some of her books have some racier parts that help convey the story of life on the reservation which in some ways is much like life in a small town where everybody knows everybody and families have known each other for years.

A marvelous insight into life in Indian country through the eyes and emotions of a young girl. A culture very different and at the same time not very different at all. Danger, jealousy, budding love, coming of age, learning old wisdom and the power of family and friendship - this has it all. I loved every minute of it.

This book gives the reader great insight into the life-style, attitudes and cultural values of out First Nation friends. Reading this book puts right into the Boundary Water's Quetico region, locked into a family that is trying to survive a harsh environment and an unjust external environment of unscrupulous trappers and government agents. It allows the reader great insight into the tenacity against social and environmental struggles that kept the Anishinaabe people thriving to the present day.

I have enjoyed reading these books with my daughters. We have learned so much from them, and have really come to care about the characters. Throughout Erdrich depicts the wonder that children take in the world around them, and the resilience and love of this little family.

I have read many of the books that Ms. Erdrich has written. Each one is amazing in it's own way. With this book you will be swept away by the danger, romance, sacrifice and drama that the author spreads out like a feast before you. I highly recommend this novel to all - not just those who love a great book about Native Americans.
This is the first I've read in this series; I will certainly be reading the others. I love Louise Erdrich's adult novels, and these are every bit as good. I wish I had grandkids to pass them along to. I may have to pass them along to someone else's!
