Overview

Peter Cook has a good life as a bound boy by a master who treats him like a son. Everything changes the day that Peter discovers that his master has died of the black plague and he is thrown out of the great house. Peter soon meets a group of people called Separatists—because they have chosen to separate from the established Church of England. Join young Peter and his friends, as they make the long and dangerous trip across the Atlantic Ocean. There they meet the Native American people whom they called Indians. Peter befriends one of them, Squanto, and celebrates the first Thanksgiving as a Pilgrim.

When his kindly master dies, a ten-year-old orphan living in seventeenth-century England joins a group of Separatists and follows them to Holland and on to America, where their quest for religious freedom becomes a struggle to survive.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Peter Cook is a hard-working young boy who lives in England. His master, who considers Peter a son, treats him very well. Peter's life is good until his master dies of the black plague. Because Peter was around his master during his illness, the other residents throw him out of the house for fear that he carries the disease. Alone, Peter must fend for himself until he meets a group of people called the Separatists who plan to travel to America to gain religious freedom. Peter joins them on their challenging voyage to the New World. When Peter finally arrives in the New World, he meets the native people. Peter becomes good friends with the Indians, especially Squanto, and even celebrates the first Thanksgiving with them. I found this book exciting, enjoyable, and educational, all at the same time. The story will keep children involved because it is eventful while also teaching history, and would be a great way to get children excited about Thanksgiving and the Pilgrims. Because the story is amusing and lively, it will spark a desire to learn. Most of all, I like the way the author created a thrilling and educational story on a level that young readers can understand. Although the story is simple, it contains many important historical facts while enticing the reader to read more. 2002 (orig. 1963), Herald Press, Ages 12 up.
