From the perilous ocean crossing to the shared bounty of the first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrim settlement of New England has become enshrined as our most sacred national myth. Yet, as bestselling author Nathaniel Philbrick reveals in his spellbinding new book, the true story of the Pilgrims is much more than the well-known tale of piety and sacrifice; it is a fifty-five-year epic that is at once tragic, heroic, exhilarating, and profound.

Mayflower and the Pilgrims' New World, is adapted from Mayflower, for younger readers and focuses primarily on the Pilgrims' quest for a new home where they could worship as they wished.  Suggested for those in grade 7 and up.
