The year was 1889. Wilhelmina Tuckerman and her family were on their way to Mount Desert Island in Maine to spend the summer because her father, Samuel, had insisted they go there instead of the Berkshires as they had done in previous years. The family was sure they were going to dislike Mount Desert Island!
When the steamship pulled into Frenchman Bay, they were all speechless as they gazed at the beauty that surrounded them. The little town of Eden (Bar Harbor) nestled against the backdrop of Green Mountain (Cadillac Mountain). The sky was so blue without a cloud in sight, and the air so pure and refreshing.
As the summer unfolds, Wilhelmina meets a young Indian girl. They become forever friends and share many adventures...
