"In her new novel, Caleb's Crossing, Geraldine Brooks once again
takes a shard of little-known history and brings it vividly to life.

American Indian graduate from Harvard College. From the few
facts that survive of this extraordinary life, Brooks creates a
luminous tale of passion and belief, magic and adventure." Viking
