Nine-year-old Bayley D'Amour couldn't think of anyone she'd rather spend more time with than her grandmother. Gokomis with her twinkling eyes and long white hair was her best friend. The only other friends she had were Gokomis' two horses, Aankwat and Odeh. When school started, everything changed and Bayley was left without her best friend, with two missing horses, and decisions to make as she stood under a spirit tree. Where did the horses go? How could she bring them home? Who could help her? What would she wish for if she could choose to be almost anything?
