This volume in the Kids of Canada series tells a poignant tale of First Nations life before the coming of European settlement.
It is the story of a Mississauga Indian girl named Morning Sky who, with her family, spends the winter camped at the mouth of the Humber River. Cold and hunger threaten their survival but by facing these hardships together a very special and powerful bond is created among the members of the family.
The Hungry Time is a concise, masterful evocation of a past way of life, its joys and its sorrows.
