The Birchbark House 
by Louise Erdrich

"In this story of a young Ojibwa girl, Omakayas, living on an island in Lake Superior around 1847, the narrative perspective used in most children's stories about nineteenth-century Native Americans is reversed. Instead of looking out at 'them' as dangers or curiosities, the author, drawing on her family's history, wants to tell about 'us', from the inside. This book establishes its own ground, in the vicinity of the 'Little House' books." (The New York Times Book Review)
