Caleb’s Crossing

Caleb’s Crossing is a fictionalized account of the first Native American graduate of Harvard College.  Caleb is the son of a chieftain of the Wampanoag Tribe on Martha’s Vineyard.  The story is told through the eyes of Bethia whose father is the Great Harbor minister.  I found the book a fascinating account of life in the 17th century as well as the settlement of Martha’s Vineyard.  Check our catalog
