In this series of seven books, photojournalist Jan Reynolds documents the distinctive cultures and climates of indigenous peoples.

It's springtime in the Arctic, and Sara and Kari are excited about the yearly reindeer roundup. Their people, the Sami, are moving the reindeer herds to mountain pastures for grazing. Family and friends also come together to celebrate the end of the long dark winter.

Sara and Kari help their father gather the family's herd together. Like other Sami people in northern Europe, Sara and Kari's family relies on reindeer for food, clothing, and shelter. Once the reindeer are rounded up, Sara and Kari join their neighbors and participate in springtime festivities such as games and reindeer races.
