  • In the abridged version of Kaya's stories, Kaya: Smoke on the Wind, this book is greatly removed and reduced to a single chapter, "The Sound of the Falls." Other than the arrival of Kaya's tribe at the falls (which is reduced), the river crossing and Tatlo falling into the river, and Kaya finding Speaking Rain, no other parts of the book are included. Thus, rather than the conflict of Speaking Rain staying with White Braids and her vow, it is implied (with the removals) that Speaking Rain remains full time with her family.
