The book imagines the life of Caleb Cheeshahteaumauk, the first Native American to graduate from Harvard. The story is told by Bethia Mayfield, the daughter of a preacher who traveled from England to Martha's Vineyard to try to bring Christianity to the Native Americans. In 1660, when Bethia is 12, the family takes Caleb, a Wampanoag Indian, into their home to prepare him for boarding school.  Books will be available at the library’s circulation desk beginning October 1.  Please confirm time and date at beforehand.
