For many days, there had been no food in the Inuit camp where Brother and Little Sister lived . . . They had set out early that morning, hoping to find some food they could bring back to share with their people."

Sister Lightning and Brother Thunder are children at play, dancing across the great arctic sky in this touching story about the search for a home.

Returning to camp, the children find their people have left without them. Through the long, cold night, they huddle near a fire and talk into the night.
