The Witch Of Blackbird Pond
ON A MORNING in mid-April, 1687, the brigantine Dolphin left the open sea, sailed briskly across the Sound to the wide mouth of the Connecticut River and into Saybrook harbor.
Kit Tyler had been on the forecastle deck since daybreak, standing close to the rail, staring hungrily at the first sight of land for five weeks.
“There’s Connecticut Colony.” a voice spoke in her ear. “You’ve come a long way to see it.” She looked up, surprised and Battered. On the whole long voyage the captain’s son had spoken scarcely a dozen words to her.
She had noticed him often. his thin wiry figure swinging easily hand over hand up the rigging, his sandy, sun-bleached fiead bent over a coil of tope.
Nathaniel Eaten, first mate, but his mother called him Nat. Now, seeing him so close beside her, she was surprised that, for all he looked so slight, the top of her head barely reached his shoulder.
“How does it look to you?” he questioned. Kit hesitated. She didn’t want to admit how disappointing she found this first glimpse of America.
The bleak line of shore surrounding the gray harbor was a disheartening contrast to the shimmering green and white that fringed the turquoise bay of Barbados which was her home.
The earthen wall of the fortification that faced the river was bare and ugly, and the houses beyond were no more than plain wooden boxes. “Is that Wethersfield?” she inquired instead.
“Oh, no, Wethersfield is some way up the river. This is the port of Saybrook. Home to us Eatens. There’s my father’s shipyard, just beyond the dock.” She could just make out the row of unimpressive shacks and the Bash of raw new lumber.
