Barbara Francis had been away for five years when she came back home to Indian Island, Maine in 1977.  She was 20 years old, pregnant, alone and with no home to go to.  Alberta Nicola and Violet Francis Shay had been basketmakers all their lives.  They took Barbara in, gave her a home and taught her the basics of their craft.  Through their stories and tales they gave Barbara a deeper understanding of her Penobscot heritage.
