But it’s not just the daily routines that shape Ruth’s world; her interactions with the native tribes and her perspective on unfolding historical events provide a unique window into the Puritan ethos. Join Ruth’s journey and immerse yourself in the vibrant tapestry of life, faith, and discovery in early Boston. Experience history as it weaves its story through the eyes of a young settler.
