The Lost Tribe
By Rob MacGregor
Battered by a hurricane, the crippled Seaflower is attacked by ruthless pirates off the coast of South America. The surviving pilgrims wash up on the beach far from Virginia, their destination. It’s 1627, and their chances of rescue are slim. Soon they are attacked by Indians and flee inland in their three lifeboats. They push deeper and deeper into the wilderness in search of a new life. But the lost nomads are faced with a dangerous and unforgiving environment, headhunters and cannibals, and dissension in their own ranks. Yet, one man finds a new way to survive when he encounters a mysterious young Indian with powers beyond reckoning. Soon he becomes an initiate in a system of medicine called the Seven Bundles. Now Jacob must hide his new knowledge and abilities from the stern Puritans, who hold strong to the ways of their past and scorn jungle magic. Ultimately, Jacob must use his talents to help his family and other settlers of Promised Land to survive.
