    Kaya, a 9 year-old Nez Pearce Indian girl, is forced to take her little sister, Speaking Rain, into the woods when emenmys from Buffalo Country attack. They are unfortunatly captured and some horses. Kaya finds her new life as a slave very depressing. Kaya isn't given much food and gathers wood and water and helps skin pelts.
