At first there was just the island. It sat by itself, the outermost island, crowned with spiky spruce trees, facing the sea.
It was Pa who felled the trees and cleared the north end of the island. Henceforth it would be known as Tibbetts Island, for that was the family name.

Watch the island and little Matthais Tibbetts grow together.
