Salish people followed a seasonal calendar that is reflected in their names for each month. Activities marked the resources and gifts of each season. Many of these traditional activities continue today among families and in the community. Author Jennifer Greene celebrates the cultural activities of each month through sonnets that share reverence, delight, and joy.

Complementing the monthly sonnets is the extraordinary original art of Antoine Sandoval. Choosing to make each month unique, Antoine chose a different style and medium for each separate illustration. The result is magical!

An illustrated glossary at the end of the book provides meaning and explanation.
