In this stunner of a children's book, Katherena is a girl who moves with her mother to a new town. She feels like a stranger until meeting an elderly artist neighbor. Together, Katherena and her new friend bond over a love of the wondrous, endless beauty of the natural world. Katherena has found a true kindred spirit, however, her new friend's health is failing her. With vibrant, awe inspiring illustrations as well as a glossary of Cree-Metis terms, Birdsong is a gracefully told tale, one that celebrates human expression and interaction with the greater world.
