Giants of the Dawnland
Native people arrived in Maine at the end of the last Ice Age, around 13,000 years ago. They came in small family groups and survived unimaginably cold winters and animals such as the giant beaver and cave bear. Fortunately, they had their great god, Gluskape, who slowly melted the ice and rid the woods of terrifying serpents. But he was also a liar and a big tease! It was a time when people, animals, and stones were equal; when Gluskape could be as large as a mountain or as small as a mouse, when the Star People traveled to the treetops. Slowly, things started to change.
