Ships in 7 to 10 business days

In England in the early 1600s, everyone was forced to join the Church of England. Young William Bradford and his friends believed they had every right to belong to whichever church they wanted. In the name of religious freedom, they fled to Holland, then sailed to America to start a new life. But the winter was harsh, and before a year passed, half the settlers had died. Yet, through hard work and strong faith, a tough group of Pilgrims did survive. Their belief in freedom of religion became an American ideal that still lives on today.
James Daugherty draws on the Pilgrims' own journals to give a fresh and moving account of their life and traditions, their quest for religious freedom, and the founding of one of our nation's most beloved holidays-- Thanksgiving.

Industry Reviews

The famous landing in 1620 with a fresh highlighting of events before and after. Beginning with the story of the Separatists in Scrooby, and following the fortunes of the group in Leyden, the author records the adventures of the Pilgrims after the first landing at Provincetown to the departure of Mr. Winthrop in 1623 with his "Good News from New England" tucked under his arm encouraging supplies and trade from England. There are scraps of incidents and information seldom used in more traditional re-creations - whales sighted at Cape Cod, grim revenges on the Indians by tough Captain Standish, a bleary-eyed Massasolt, shaky with brandy, signing a peace treaty, and a village of sick Indians being revived by the amateur medications of John Winslow. Plenty of action, quick thinking, and courage under fire peace this lively narrative. (Kirkus Reviews)
