Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-Report writers and those interested in Colonial America will welcome this biography. In his preface, Doherty briefly outlines the shortage of source material on his subject's life and indicates that he has occasionally "used [his] own common sense-backed by research-to add `flesh' to William Bradford's character." Such speculation is clearly identified when it occurs in the text. Like Gary Schmidt in William Bradford (Eerdmans, 1999), Doherty quotes extensively from Bradford's own history, Of Plymouth Plantation. He obviously has a great deal of respect and admiration for Bradford, but is careful to point out weaknesses and treats potentially controversial incidents evenhandedly. Some actions that might seem particularly startling to modern readers (bringing back the head of Wituwamat to display in the settlement) are placed in historical context (English colonists would have seen heads decorating Tower Bridge in London). This is a clear and thoughtful presentation of Bradford's life and of the Pilgrims' settlement in the New World. The book has fewer illustrations than Schmidt's title, and they're primarily paintings of imagined scenes and a few more or less contemporary prints. Unfortunately, there are no maps.-Elaine Fort Weischedel, Turner Free Library, Randolph, MA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
