KIRKUS REVIEW

Another Eskimo story of the eastern Arctic by the author of Tosie of the Far North tells of the rewards that come to a young girl for doing her duty. Just as she is about to start off on an exciting trip in summer to a nearby settlement to see an airplane, Orina's Grandmother falls and twists her leg so that Grina must stay and care for the camp. But Just as her disappointment grows it is dispelled by the airplane's flight overhead and by the two oranges it drops to Grina.
