Seaman by Gail Langer Karwoski

This book was pretty disappointing. It ends by saying that historical documents reveal Seaman's life ended very differently than the author wrote (she had him gifted away to a young explorer going back west) but it seems he likely returned to the sta ...more

“There is magic everywhere around you, but most people are too busy being grownup to notice it.”
Sassafras Lowrey, Lost Boi

“I won’t tell you, dear readers, that she lived happily ever after. You should know all too well there is no such thing. However: she did live fully, and she loved widely, and she helped light the way for others like herself. How much more magic does one need than that?”
