This includes a vision that taught them how to grow corn They traveled a great distance to find a new home. A big fire separated the tribe. It  was many years before they were reunited.

Can you tell us something about these books. How many pages, what age are they for. A quick summary of them would be great as well. I could not find any detail on them and only one of them had a book review. Thanks. I am interested in them but I need more information. Thanks so much! Jean
