Originally published in 2003. Republished in 2011.

An engaging story, shared in English and Cree, about a family, a fox, and an ice fishing adventure. Cody and his family go ice fishing one chilly but beautiful winter afternoon. While Papa and Cody fish, Mama and little Joe take a little nap in the sled. A fox, across the lake, with fur as bright as flames, catches the attention of the sled dogs, who give chase, pulling Mama and Joe along for a ride. Cody must decide how best to help his family. Told in a lyrical fashion, with captivating oils paintings depicting the beauty of northern Manitoba, this book shares traditional ways of life for future generations.
