Elias certainly never planned for this kind of life.  He had no desire to become a doctor's apprentice and certainly no thought of coming to the new world.  But here he is in Jamestown Colony and he is trying to get by as best he can.  When he meets a young Pamunkee Indian girl who is training to be the village medicine woman, he learns a great deal about medicine and about life in the new world.  When you have finished reading Elias' story, turn the book over and read the story from Sacahocan's point of view.
