The adventurous saga of the settling of the Plymouth Colony is strikingly portrayed in this magnificent book. Spectacular paintings by renowned artist N.C. Wyeth, gloriously bring to life the carefully researched text by well known children's book author Robert San Souci. The story of the Pilgrims, including the first Thanksgiving, is a central part of America's history and, over the course of time, it has taken on an almost mythical quality.

With this book, you can not only enjoy it, but you can also..

As a children's book telling the stories of the pilgrims, it is a great book with Robert San Souci's text that never talks down to children. However, for those interested in the visual arts, the ..
