Mayflower 1620

by Plimoth Plantation


Quick Overview

Contains a photographed reenactment of the voyage and landing of the Mayflower with text covering the perspectives of both the Native Americans and the English.


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. Size 0.17" H x 10.44" L x 8.38" W, 47 pages
