In 1665, a young man from Martha's Vineyard became the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College. Narrator Bethia Mayfield, a young girl growing up in the mid-1600s, meets Caleb, the son of a chieftain, and the two bond through friendship. Caleb eventually earns his Harvard degree while still honoring his native roots.
