In November 1619 the Mayflower, with its cargo of pilgrim families, reached the shores of Massachusetts.
Imagine You Were There… Sailing on the Mayflower celebrates this milestone by helping readers imagine what it was like to actually be there. Fully illustrated, the book charts the voyage of the pilgrims from England via Holland, and chronicles their arrival in America and the founding of the Plymouth Colony. The book includes first-hand accounts of the voyage and early settler life, with the difficulties it brought. It also looks at the experiences of settlers in other parts of the world, and at some of the same issues that are relevant to modern-day immigrants.
