Mayflower 1620: A New Look at a Pilgrim (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Plimoth Plantation and the National Geographic Society come together to tell the true story behind the legendary voyage of the "Mayflower." A meticulously researched work, "Mayflower 1620" offers children a compelling, fresh account of this much-told story. Vibrant photography of a rare reenactment using the "Mayflower II" leads readers imaginatively into the narrative. The vivid and informative text explores the story behind the exhibits at the living-history museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Primary sources record what the voyagers wore, what they ate, and telling details of their journey. First-person accounts reveal the hopes and dreams they carried. Readers share in the long hours at sea, and in the dangers faced after landfall. Extensive end notes, a map, a detailed chronology, and a bibliography round out the full story of the "Mayflower." Readers experience a new look at this seminal historical event through the eyes of those who now regularly inhabit the world of the pilgrims--the actors who interpret the Pilgrim Voyage. This eye-opening book teaches children the value of closely reexamining everything we think we know.
