Eleven-year-old Georgia lives with her grandparents, Paw Paw and Gramma, on the edge of the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana. Spring comes, and it rains and rains until one afternoon the creek behind their house suddenly becomes a wall of water, washing away everything the family owns -- their house, their barn, and even Daisy, the only stuffed animal Georgia has ever had. Through sheer determination, Georgia and her grandparents gradually rebuild their lives, but it''s not until Georgia finds Sky -- a foal that somehow survived the flood -- that the family begins to heal and find meaning again despite their losses. Based on the true story of Georgia Salois and written in the haunting voice of a young child, "Sky" vividly describes the historic flood of 1964 and its effect on Georgia and her people. Their courage in overcoming disaster, poverty, and discrimination provides young readers with a compelling portrayal of endurance.
From the Publisher:
When the huge flood of 1964 hits their small community and destroys everything her family ever possessed, eleven-year-old Georgia finds the rebuilding process difficult until the arrival of a wounded foal, and its incredible recovery, changes her outlook on what really matters in life.When the huge flood of 1964 hits their small community and destroys everything her family ever possessed, eleven-year-old Georgia finds the rebuilding process difficult until the arrival of a wounded foal, and its incredible recovery, changes her outlookon what really matters in life.
