Figuring It Out: Even More Sketches

Diagram of the William Penn "Great Treaty" wampum belt

These medium-sized sketches, like those that came before, are used to figure out the details of the final drawings to come. Think of them as "working drawings." The drawings follow extensive research identifying items that really could have existed in the historic context of the story.

Sketches below include costumes for Shshash (Wynonah's husband), Esther Harris (a founder of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania), our heroine Wynonah, aged 10, and her mother; also, patterns for bulrush mats used to decorate the inside wall of Wynonah's wigwam; and various food utensils and storage vessels.
