The Shaman's Secret

Dublin Core

Abstract

Mari, born of a Spanish-Indian union, is a servant of the Spanish governor in St. Augustine in the late 16th century. One day, while looking for a lost goat, she sees an old woman drink from a spring and then disappear. Curious, she too drinks from the spring and later becomes an apprentice of the shaman who tells her it is the mythical fountain of youth, but is accused of witchcraft by the Spanish priest. With a foot in two worlds, Mari learns of a planned attack on St. Augustine by English pirates and must find a way to convince the town of the truth of her words.
