"I Sailed on the Mayflower" written by Roger Pilkington with black and white illustrations by Douglas Bisset, published by St. Martin's Press, copyright 1966, first printing.
" Young Love Brewster, an English boy brought up in Holland, was full of courage and determination when he boarded the Mayflower with his family and set sail to America. His father had been smuggling forbidden books to England in wine caskets and discovery of the activity made it necessary for his family to leave Holland. Love describes their seemingly endless weeks at sea. When they finally landed at Plymouth on a cold and dreary day, Love went along with the exploration party to find a suitable place to settle. He describes many hardships in their first months in the new land. Finally, after a long hard year, all the settlers celebrated a Thanksgiving feast and invited the Indians who were now their friends.."
This account by a young boy of the Mayflower voyage and the first year in the new land brings a sense of immediate excitement to a familiar story.
