This is a fascinating story of John Howland's journey from England to America on the Mayflower. It follows the settlers through their early days. Through the text and vibrant, realistic illustrations children will gain a real sense of what life was like in those times. This would be an excellent addition to a classroom library and a deeper exploration of a classroom theme of Thanksgiving, colonial times, first settlers.

Catalogue Text
158
At a young age, John Howland learned what it meant to take advantage of an opportunity. Leaving the docks of London on the Mayflower as an indentured servant to Pilgrim John Carver, John Howland little knew that he was embarking on the adventure of a lifetime. By his great good fortune, John survived falling overboard on the crossing of the Atlantic Ocean, and he earned his keep ashore by helping to scout a safe harbor and landing site for his bedraggled and ill shipmates. Would his luck continue to hold amid the dangers and adversity of the Pilgrims’ lives in New England? John Howland’s tale is masterfully told in his own voice, bringing an immediacy and young perspective to the oft-told Pilgrims’ story. P.J. Lynch captures this pivotal moment in American history in precise and exquisite detail, from the light on the froth of a breaking wave to the questioning voice of a teen in a new world.
