This supplemental reader by Edmund J. Carpenter tells the story of the establishment of the Plymouth colony. Huddled aboard a small ship plowing the Atlantic, 102 passengers sailed their way into history in 1620. Carpenter's well-researched narrative captures the physical hardships, spiritual challenges, and emotional toll William Bradford, Miles Standish, Samuel Fuller, William Brewster, and other Mayflower voyagers experienced as they struggled to found a Christian settlement in an untamed land. Young people will understand the true motivations and struggles of the Pilgrims as they read this book. It contains several pictures and illustrations.
Recommended for High Schoolers.
