This reader by Edmund Carpenter tells the story of the establishment of the Plymouth colony. Huddled aboard a small ship plowing across the Atlantic, 102 passengers sailed their way into history in 1620. Carpenter's well-researched narrative captures the physical hardships, spiritual challenges, and emotional toll William Bradford, Miles Standish, Samuel Fuller, William Brewster, and other Mayflower voyagers experienced as they struggled to found a Christian settlement in an untamed land. Young people will understand the true motivations and struggles of the Pilgrims as they read this book.

This book beautifully tells of all the hardships, the joy, and the faith of the Pilgrims. There are so many trite little history stories for young people available that are devoid of the facts of the hardships and how they were faced with faith and courage. I have kept this book on my shelf even after we finished our years of home schooling. The Mayflower Pilgrims is worth re-reading as an adult.
This is a good book, to start off my daughter said it was boring, But she kept reading, and now is enjoying things going on.
