Product Description

Caleb's Crossing is a beautiful historical, strong in Christian faith and rich in history, based upon the true account of a young man named Caleb. Caleb was the first Native American to graduate from Harvard, in 1665. His story is remarkable. As an Indian Youth, he was raised in his own language and culture. Around the time he was twelve, he converted to Christianity, then mastered English, and then Latin and Hebrew and Greek. He attended Harvard and studied to be a minister with the finest Puritan youths of his time.

The story's main character is Bethia Mayfield, the daughter of Minister Mayfield (the man responsible for Caleb's conversion). Bethia and Caleb become close friends. Bethia encourages Caleb's nascent Christainity and spiritual re-birth, and it is Bethia that holds Caleb's hand as he dies.

Publisher's Description

A New York Times bestselling tale of passion and belief, magic and adventure from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author

Bethia Mayfield is a restless and curious young woman growing up in Martha's vineyard in the 1660s amid a small band of pioneering English Puritans. At age twelve, she meets Caleb, the young son of a chieftain, and the two forge a secret bond that draws each into the alien world of the other. Bethia's father is a Calvinist minister who seeks to convert the native Wampanoag, and Caleb becomes a prize in the contest between old ways and new, eventually becoming the first Native American graduate of Harvard College. Inspired by a true story and narrated by the irresistible Bethia, Caleb’s Crossing brilliantly captures the triumphs and turmoil of two brave, openhearted spirits who risk everything in a search for knowledge at a time of superstition and ignorance.
