Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Anokì and his sister Pangì Mahingan have grown up, and now face a decision that will change their lives forever. Twelve years after Mahingan was wounded battling for his life against the Haudenosaunee warrior known as Ö:nenhste Erhar (Corn Dog), we rejoin his family and learn what fate held for him. Now, his children, Anokì and Pangì Mahingan, along with their twin cousins Makwa and Wàbek, are grown and have adult responsibilities. Still living with their Algonquin family, they have become a formidable fighting unit with the addition of three Mi´kmaq warriors, E´s, Jilte´g, and the fierce Elue´wiet Ga´qaquj. However, there is danger in the land of the setting sun, and nothing is more dangerous than what the family is going to encounter from the fierce enemy of their new Anishinaabe allies: the Lakȟóta.
From The Publisher*Set twelve years after the events of Algonquin Spring, this book follows the now-grown Anokì, his sister Pangì Mahingan, and the rest of their family as they face a new enemy: the Lakȟóta.
