The Witch of Blackbird Pond is based in 1687 where a teenager, Katherine Tyler also known as Kitt. She lived with her Grandfather in Barbados, but he died. Kitt is forced to go to Connecticut because when her Grandfather died dept was put on her and she had to get away. She begins the story on a ship named the Dolphin which is going from Barbados to Connecticut. On the way to Connecticut Kitt is having a short conversation with the Caption's son Nat Eaton. The Dolphon arrived on the Saybrook Port in Connecticut. The ship cannot get to land though because of the current. Some of the sailors get on longboats and head ashore, Kitt wants to go ashore but cannot go with the sailors and then she begins to complain because she is very excited about going to America and was let down when she found out she couldn't go with the sailors. Kit complained and she got to go on a long boat to shore. While Kitt was on the boat a little girl was a passenger also. The little girl had a play doll in her hand. She got upset and threw the doll out into the water. Kitt noticed what had happened and jumped into the water quickly. She raced after the doll and gathered it unto her hands. When she arrived back to the boat she handed the doll to the girl. Kitt arrived in Connecticut and say everything was so grey. She realized it was not what she had expected at all, actually the opposite.
