Welcome to Colonial Pemaquid

WoolfWade_DownwindfromPemaquidlgHannah knew that life and death hung on fragile strings. She lived in Pemaquid, the most northerly English fishing and trading outpost of coastal America, now known as Maine. Accidents, illness, and betrayal could end your life without warning. You never could be sure who were friends or enemies. Who would help you, and who might kill you? In this story a girl, learning medicinal skills, finds help in a friendship with two Penobscot young people. But violence shatters all hopes of survival. This fictionalized story is based on a true event in seventeenth century Maine.

Suitable for Young Adults 9+ Years.
