Overview

For over half a century, Landmark Books have been an important part of children's libraries. Hailed as the first historical series for kids, Landmark Books show us where we've been and where we're going. In England in the early 1600s, everyone was forced to join the Church of England. Young William Bradford and his friends believed they had a 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.

In order to escape religious persecution, a group of English Separatists set sail for America in 1620, hoping to establish a new colony.

    This History Book Reads Like a Novel

    This account of the first three years the Pilgrim Separatists spent at Plymouth Plantation reads like a novel. It is filled with adventurous episodes, danger, and treachery. This bit of history is certainly an example of the truth being more interesting than fiction!
