Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Margaret, a young Inuit girl begs her father to let her go to the outsiders' school. Before finally relenting, he warns her, as water wears rock smooth, her spirit will be worn down and made small. She soon encounters the Raven, a nun who immediately disapproves of the strong-willed young girl. To prove her dislike, the Raven passes out gray stockings to all except Margaret, who receives red ones. In an instant Margaret is the laughingstock of the school. Now she must face her tormentor.
