What would it be like for a girl to suddenly find herself in Kaya's Nez Perce homeland in 1764? What would it be like to live in her village, to sleep in a tepee, and to follow the ways of her tribe? In this book, readers can join Kaya on exciting adventures and discover what it's like to care for a sick baby and ride horses bareback - but they should watch out for bears! Their journey back in time can take whatever twists and turns they choose as they select from a variety of exciting options in this multiple-ending story.

First, Emma Carlson Berne thought she was going to be a college professor, so she went to graduate school at Miami University in Ohio. After that, she taught horseback riding in Boston and Charleston, South Carolina. Then Emma found out how much she enjoys writing for children and young adults. Since that time, Emma has authored over two dozen books and often writes about historical figures such as Sacagawea, Helen Keller, Christopher Columbus, and the artist Frida Kahlo. Emma lives in a hundred-year-old house in Cincinnati, Ohio, with her two little boys and her husband. She loves to walk in the woods and pick berries, just like Kaya.
