  • Nya and Akeer are eventually adopted by an American family, and come to live in their house near the oil polluted Yellowstone River.
  • "The oil spill 'threatens downstream water users, including drinking water supplies'"(Wendy Koch, National Geographic)

  • Nya and Akeer are always upset and surprised about the growing amount of oil in the water.
