Salt and the Sea Venture
In 1609, Salt was a scruffy white alley cat looking for a new life. When he hears the Sea Venture is sailing to the New World he knows this is his chance. Life on the Sea Venture is not what he expected. The other cats want him to walk the plank. But he keeps all four paws on deck until a tempest threatens to sink the ship.
The passengers struggle for days to keep the ship afloat and Salt expects the ship to sink at any moment. Wrecking on the island of Bermuda seems scary at first, but turns out to be good luck. The island holds many new adventures, but Salt is determined to get to the New World, so when the humans build two more boats, he joins them. They make it to the New World, but find a horror there that none of them expected.
Pepper and Pocahontas
Salt and Katie’s daughter, Pepper, helps Pocahontas bring peace between the Powhatan and the English.
In 1611 Pepper, a small grey kitten is snatched from her parents and taken to live with the Great Chief Powhatan. She soon finds a place with the natural people of Virginia, but only when she sees Pocahontas does she feel truly at home.
Pepper and Pocahontas form a bond. When the Indian girl is sent to a neighboring tribe, Pepper fears they will be separated forever. The cat manages to stay with Pocahontas, only to be snatched again, this time by the English. The pair gradually adapt to their new life. Pepper is even reunited with her parents, Salt and Katie.
Pocahontas hopes to end the constant fighting between the English and her people by marrying John Rolfe. Then she agrees to represent her people in England. When they sail for England, Pepper is unaware that for her friend Pocahontas, this is a one way trip.
Morton and the Mayflower
Salt and Katie’s son, Morton, journeys to the New World onboard the Mayflower and takes part in the legendary “First Thanksgiving.”
In 1621 Salt’s son, Morton joins the Hopkins family and the Pilgrims on the Mayflower. After a sixty-six day journey through stormy weather, they finally reach Cape Cod. Too bad they meant to wind up way farther south.
Now the Pilgrims have to figure out who’s in charge and where they will live. They have to battle the freezing New England winter, illness, and hostile natives. Those who survive will depend on cats like Morton to help them find their way in the New World.
