Having lived in the Nalibocka Forest since she was 2 years old, Yona knows how to shelter and find food in all seasons. When she discovers groups of people hiding in the forest in fear, she realizes that she needs to share her knowledge to help them survive in the forest and to evade the Nazis who are hunting them. Inspired by true events, this novel is a griping story of survival, sacrifice, and the power of good over evil.
