This is the story of how the first beaver came to be. Young Reedee, born with hair the color of Mother Earth, is different from the rest of her people, and it isn't just her hair that sets her apart. At night, while the village sleeps, Reedee disappears into the forest. At first her parents worry, but they soon discover their daughter has a path she must follow on her own. Putting aside their concern, they support Reedee and allow her to become her true self.
