It seems only yesterday that we arrived at this school, each of us alone, each of us searching, each of us a little afraid.
Suddenly the year is over. We are leaving.
Again, each of us will be alone. But each has discovered there is no need to be afraid. For no matter how far apart two friends must journey, it is still the same sunrise. And, maybe tomorrow, what we have all been searching for will all come clear.
In a time when Canada is still young and prejudice against its native peoples still socially acceptable, two girls from different worlds come together to form a friendship that defies the odds.
