N. C. Wyeth's Pilgrimsby Robert San Souci
Synopses & Reviews
The adventurous saga of the settling of the Plymouth Colony is strikingly portrayed in this magnificent book. Spectacular paintings by renowned artist N.C. Wyeth, gloriously bring to life the carefully researched text by well known children's book author Robert San Souci. The story of the Pilgrims, including the first Thanksgiving, is a central part of America's history and, over the course of time, it has taken on an almost mythical quality. Drawing upon a variety of resources, including the author's trip to the Plimouth Plantation, the text dispels some popular misconceptions about the setting of our nation as it broadens our understanding of the bravery and determination of our forebears. A beautiful artbook as well as an informative history book, N.C Wyeth's Pilgrims belongs in every home, library, and classroom.
"A fine text and superlative production" ("The Horn Book"). "San Souci dedicated this book to the school teachers of America (and) they will find the book extremely helpful in their teaching."--"Library Talk." "American Bookseller" "Pick of the Lists." Full color.
