When Margaret Pokiak was very young, she traveled with her father from her home in the High Arctic to Aklavik. The Inuit girl was mesmerized by what she saw there - strange dark-cloaked nuns and pale-skinned priests who had journeyed from far-off lands. Margaret knew they held the key to the greatest of the outsiders' mysteries - reading.
Margaret begs her father to let her go to the outsiders' school. Before finally relenting, he warns her: as water wears rock smooth, her spirit will be worn down and made small.
Margaret soon encounters the Raven - a nun with a hooked nose and bony, claw-like fingers. Raven immediately disapproves of the strong-willed young girl. To prove her dislike, the Raven passes out gray stockings to all except Margaret, who receives red ones. In an instant Margaret is the laughingstock of the school.
Now she must face her tormentor.
