Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0888996748, Hardcover)

Marja admires her brave, strong father as he goes off into the woods and brings back a sleigh full of logs. She also looks up her older sister and can’t wait to join her in skiing to school. When Marja turns seven, she’s finally ready. Her father tells her, “When you are strong inside, you can do anything,” and despite her mother’s fears, she skis off to school on her own. Then a shocking event turns Marja’s world upside down. How will she cope? Evocative prose and beautiful illustrations bring this moving tale, set in a 19th-century Canadian logging town, to life.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:16:31 -0400)

Seven-year-old Marja is finally big enough to learn to ski to school. One day she sees a friend who has fallen through the broken ice on the river. With the help of her skis, Marja save her friend.
