Mayflower 1620: A New Look at a Pilgrim Voyage

Mayflower 1620: A New Look at a Pilgrim Voyage Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Mayflower 1620 photos by Sisse Brimberg and Cotton Coulson, portrays life aboard this ship.

Synopsis:

Plimoth Plantation and National Geographic now tell the true story behind the voyage of the "Mayflower--offering kids a compelling account that's quite different from the story traditionally told. Vibrant photos of a historic reenactment plus informative text based on rigorous research and primary sources reveal new details about what the ship's passengers wore, ate, hoped, dreamed, did to pass the long hours during the voyage, and faced after landing in the place they called Plymouth. Readers may be surprised to learn that these seafarers didn't call themselves Pilgrims--that name was applied to them centuries later. And while about half the passengers indeed were seeking religious freedom, many others were far more interested in seeking new fortunes. Here's a great book for showing kids that a true understanding of the past often requires looking closer at what we think we know!
