Book Description

Attitash and Elisabeth may believe their rare friendship will endure these desperate times, but nothing is easy in the New World.. As many newcomers from England arrive, they bring both opportunity and greed. The demand for food increases, and so does the fear of the Native people. The fragile peace treaty between the Pilgrims and Wampanoag is threatened by treachery, and the friendship between Attitash and Elisabeth faces its toughest challenge.

About the Author

A graduate of Macalester College, Kathleen Vellenga taught young children and was an active volunteer as well as a mother of three until she was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in 1981. In 1991, she received an award from the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council and three other state ethnic councils for her legislative efforts to support the needs of our children and their families. Kathleen left the Legislature in 1994 to become the executive director of the Saint Paul Children’s Initiative, a new early childhood collaborative. Her volunteer activities include working with young mothers in a community based maternal/infant clinic. While considerable historical research is the basis for the plot, Vellenga drew deeply upon her personal relationships for the emotional heart of the story. She lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.
