Reuniting With Family  Oct 24, 2004
I didn't want to give away the story in previous reviews, but I now feel safe to say that this is the book in which Kaya reunites with her blind sister, Speaking Rain. In Book 2, Kaya had to leave her sister behind to escape from an enemy camp, and worried the whole time after that she would never see her sister again. But in this book, Kaya is reunited with her sister, who has something to say that will alter the happiness Kaya is feeling. As usual, the art in the book is beautiful, and the history pages in the book were quite interesting. Sadly, the waterfalls where Kaya's people fished for salmon in this book were ruined by the building of dams, otherwise I might want to see real pictures of what were described as amazing waterfalls. Kaya and her peoples' story is an interesting one, because there wasn't much civilization back then, and the land was more open and wild.

I think every girl learning about the Nez Perce, American history, Native Americans, or any girl who loves to read should read the Kaya books.
Very Interesting Read  Oct 16, 2004
This is a book about a Nez Perce Indian girl named Kaya. Yet, this story is not only about Kaya but also about her adventures and her families life as well. This book is very interesting which makes for a quick read as well. The book offers many interesting facts and information on the way of life for girls like Kaya, the Nez Perce, and the time era this story takes place. So, this is very informational. I would encourage everyone to read this book if they are looking to be entertained as well as informed.
Recommended  Dec 18, 2002
This is another in the American Girls series about Kaya'aton'my', a nine-year-old Native-American girl growing up among the Nez Perce people in 1764. In this book, Kaya and her family journey to the Celilo Falls for the yearly salmon fishing. But, Kaya has more on her mind than usual; her friend Two Hawks has promised to bring her word of her lost sister Speaking Rain, and her sister Brown Deer is preparing for her own marriage. Soon, Kaya finds herself learning that losing isn't always completely losing, and finding is always completely possessing.

This is another excellent American Girl story. My eleven-year-old daughter is a great fan of Kaya, and I must admit that I like the stories as well. While the lessons that Kaya learns are not as hard as those learned by Kit, for example, they are quite profound. My daughter and I bother really liked this story, and we recommend it to you and the American girl in your life!

The importance of family  Nov 12, 2002
Summer time has arrived for Kaya, and this means making the annual journey to Celilo Falls for salmon fishing and much much more. Kaya can't wait for the fun, but she also hopes that at Celilo Falls, some of the other tribes might have news about her lost sister, Speaking Rain. Her other sister, Brown Deer, is on her mind too. Brown Deer is soon to marry Cut Creek, and Cut Creek's aunt has come to see if Brown Deer will be a suitable wife. For Kaya it is a very bittersweet summer. She finally finds her sister Speaking Rain, only to find out that Speaking Rain has made a vow to the woman who saved her to never leave. And what about Brown Deer? Kaya knows that if Brown Deer marries Cut Creek, she will have to leave them. Will Kaya come up with some plans so she won't be losing both her sisters at once? I felt that this book could have been better. When they introduced this book they said there would be a lot of festivites for the Nez Perce during the summer. Unfortunately so much time was spent on Kaya trying to solve her family problems, that nothing really fun was mentioned. I was really hoping to see how Nez Perce celebrated the arrival of summer. There wasn't that much mention of Two Hawks either which disappointed me a bit. Still this is a good book to add to your collection.
A Tale of Two Sisters  Sep 9, 2002

Kaya is reunited with her sister, Speaking Rain, who had been separated from the tribe. Speaking Rain has made a promise that her strong spirit has vowed to keep, but it means some hard choices for her and for Kaya. It may mean that Kaya loses her dear sister for good. Meanwhile, Kaya's older sister is preparing for marriage. The Aunt of the young man that she wants to marry has come to watch her work during the fishing season, to determine if she will make a good wife. Will Kaya lose both sisters to their vows or is there a way to remain a family?
