About This Item

Caleb's Crossing A Novel, Brooks, Geraldine. Published by Viking, New York, 2011. First Edition. Grey boards with gilt spine titles. 8vo up to 9½" tall. 306 pages with map and endpaper illustration of Caleb Cheeshahteaumauk's letter to his benefactor. In mint condition in like unclipped jacket.
When Pulitzer Prize winner Geraldine Brooks came to live on Martha's Vineyard in 2006, she ran across a map by the island's native Wampanoag people that marked the birthplace of Caleb, first Native American to graduate of Harvard College--in 1665. Her curiosity piqued, she unearthed and fleshed out his thin history, immersing herself in the records of his tribe, of the white families that settled the island in the 1640s, and 17th-century Harvard. In Caleb's Crossing, Brooks offers a compelling answer to the riddle of how--in an era that considered him an intellectually impaired savage--he left the island to compete with the sons of the Puritanical elite.
