Twelve-year old Hanata loves playing around the hills and riverbanks of her prairie home, but the young girlâ€™s life is far from carefree. Everything is connected to the innii, or buffalo, which the Blackfoot people rely on for their food, clothing, and shelter. When a winter storm descends on the land, the buffalo disappear and the people begin to grow hungry. All hope is lost until Hanata has a dream that leads her on a search for a magical stone with the power to bring back the innii.
