After her mother comes to her in a dream, Little Firefly sets off to find happiness as a servant for the Invisible One. Both legend and lore are part of the Native American tradition. Reminiscent of the Cinderella story, this is the enchanting tale of a shy maiden who wins the heart of a great warrior despite her cruel and mocking older sisters.
