When a mishap delays Jessie at the end of a school day, she takes a shortcut home. But the shortcut turns into an adventure, as Jessie is transported through time and space, to early 19th-century Newfoundland. There she meets Shawnadithit who, as the last surviving member of the Beothuk, has witnessed the end of a once-great people.

I think that this series was a very creative and interesting way to present history. As an adult, I didn't need the framing device of the modern youth at the beginning and end, but I can see why that would appeal to the target audience. Very well done!

This was my favourite of the series.
