The third novel in the critically acclaimed Birchbark House series by New York Times bestselling author Louise Erdrich.


Omakayas was a dreamer who did not yet know her limits.


When Omakayas is twelve winters old, she and her family set off on a harrowing journey in search of a new home. Pushed 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.


The Birchbark House Series is the story of one Ojibwe family’s journey through one hundred years in America. In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews wrote that The Porcupine Year is “charming, suspenseful, and funny, and always bursting with life.”
