Broken Adrift
Our Price: $2.00

By Gwen E. Zwickel and Scott A. McLaughlin
This delightful coloring book is adapted from a story written by author Charles Barnard (1838-1920). Twelve-year-old Eliza Hamilton lived aboard the Erie Canal boat Betsey Jane, traveling the waters of the Hudson River, the St Lawrence River, and all the way west to Buffalo, NY. One day Betsey and her baby brother were spending a quiet evening aboard the boat, rafted together with a dozen others in a tow, when she noticed that everything was more still than it should be. She went up on deck to investigate, and she did not see any other boats – she was adrift!
