Description

This moving book, written in the haunting voice of a young child, is based on true stories told to the author by her friend Georgia Salois, a Metis whose people lived with the Blackfeet Nation in Montana. Sky focuses not only on the events of the historic flood of 1964 and its effects on Georgia and her people, but also on the poverty and discrimination that they experienced and how they found the courage to survive.

Editorial Reviews

This simple tale elegantly showcases a girl's story of triumph over adversity.

— School Library Journal

...readers will [be] won over by Georgia's forthright personality and fresh, first-person voice.

— Horn Book

[Georgia's] direct honest voice, distinguished by grammatical quirks true to her age and upbringing, wins us over and draws us into a tale that is interesting, accessible and wonderfully revealing. An outstanding work for readers grades two to four.

— Toronto Star

...perfect for reading aloud.
