This is an older novel, but an excellent read. In 1665, a young man from Martha's Vineyard became the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College. Upon this slender factual scaffold, Brooks has created a luminous tale of love and faith, magic and adventure.
The narrator of Caleb's Crossing is Bethia Mayfield, growing up in a small band of pioneers and Puritans. Restless and curious, she yearns after an education that is closed to her by her sex. She often slips away to explore the island's glistening beaches and observe the native Wampanoag inhabitants. Bethia's minister's father tries to convert the Wampanoag tribal members into Christianity and one of his projects is to the education of Caleb. who attends in Cambridge, studying Latin and Greek among the colonial elite. There, Bethia finds herself reluctantly indentured as a housekeeper and can closely observe Caleb's crossing of cultures.
There are a few copies at the Murphys Library.
