In coming to America, she has left all of the native plants behind her, not to mention her mother and aunts, all of whom mentored her in the ways of medicinal herbs. And now she is expecting her third child. In a beautiful and surprising moment, she encounters Mikeh, an elder in the Wabenaki tribe, who offers to guide her and give her what she needs for the birth. Mikweh and his Wabenaki family give gifts to the Tullys that will sustain them for years to come.
