There, the young boy finds a place for himself and begins detailing his life with the Pilgrimsthe births, deaths, marriages, and the important role that the Indians play in the settlers lives. When a ship arrives nearly a year later to take the stranded passengers to Jamestown. Christopher finds he doesnt want to leave. But he is still indentured to Captain Sibsey, who wont set him free.
