Written in the first person, a Native American girl is facing bullying from her classmates. They make fun of the fact that she lives on the lake. She can't understand why others do not see the beauty of the lake and all its inhabitants. When she starts to feel sad, Grampa tells her a Seneca folktale about the muskrat and she realizes the importance of her home, family and culture. She also understands her value in the world.
