Synopsis: A stirring and superbly illustrated retelling of the saga of the pilgrims, their journey on the Mayflower, and the hardships they faced in the New World uses simple easy-to-understand language and draws on actual records of a Mayflower passenger.
From Booklist: Ages 6^-9. Presenting the story from the point of view of a nine-year-old boy, this picture book tells of sailing to the New World and building a settlement. Though based on first-hand accounts of the Mayflower voyage, the names Mayflower and Plymouth are never mentioned, and, for once, the story does not end with an account of the first Thanksgiving. Readers familiar with the 1620 expedition will recognize elements of the story: the hope for a new life with religious freedom, the difficult journey across the sea, the harsh winter of cold, disease, and deaths, and the help of friendly Indians who teach the settlers where to fish and how to plant Indian corn. As Van Leeuwen notes, America's history is full of families who gave up everything they had in another country for the hope of a better life here, and the stories continue today. Thus, she gives no names to the people whose tale she tells, letting them stand for all immigrants and lending their story a universality unusual in books about the Mayflower pilgrims. Beautifully composed pictures in pastels, charcoal, and colored pencils on textured paper illustrate places and events in an understated yet effective way. Their soft-focus, impressionistic look complements the author's purpose in telling a particular story that reflects the broader immigrant experience. Carolyn Phelan
