Sister Girl and her brother, Young Wolf, have gone out to explore the land around their village. They are Plains Indians. Suddenly, a prairie fire is racing across the land around them. They escape the fire but find themselves lost and afraid.

In this vivid Native American tale, the spirit of their grandmother, now one of the Star People in the heavens, comes to them and guides them to safety.

This is a beautiful story that features the constellations in the night sky.
