Persa's Breeze was first told on the bow of a sloop off Montauk. This story tells of a girl whose curiosity pushes her to try things outside her comfort and experience. When Persa gets in trouble far away from home, she overcomes her fear and innovates a solution to her problem with far-reaching benefits for her family and village.
