The Mayflower People; Triumphs and Tragediesby Anna W. Hale, Maria Hazen-Voris
A riveting day-by-day account of the Mayflower crossing based on actual journals, public records, and letters. Ages 10-14
Children's Literature - Victoria CrensonThis is a gripping account of the men, women, and children who sailed on the overloaded and ill-equipped Mayflower in September of the year 1620. A violent storm cracked the ship's beam and drove the Mayflower off course, forcing a landing at Plymouth. Then a mysterious illness wiped out nearly half the settlers. The colony's survival hung in the balance until the settlers' luck changed. They met a remarkable man named Squanto. Hale's fascinating narrative demonstrates how odd coincidences and twists of fate can radically change the course of history.
