Young Nuna has started to hear things she can't figure out. Realizing she has inherited the ability to hear the spirits of rushing rivers and soaring mountains, Nuna's grandmother takes her to the river and entrusts her to a boatman who brings her to where a glacier is melting and the spirit of a great mountain weeps. Does Nuna have the power to answer the mountain's cry? In this re-telling of the Native American story of Jumping Mouse, a young girl discovers the transformative power of nature and the importance of courage.
