One day Tihtiyas, a twelve-year old Passamaquoddy girl, sees a huge bird approaching the shore. As the bird comes nearer, she is flabbergasted, as he realizes it is a boat! Through Tihtiyas’s eyes, we take part in the great adventure of the French as they prepare for and spend their first winter on Muttoneguis Island (Saint Croix). Among them is a twelve-year-old boy, with whom Tihtiyas will make friends.
