Fictionalized story, with re-enactors photographed, of a day in the life of a young boy who really did exist and really was seven in 1627. Very engagingly told in authentically 17th-century language, with a welcome glossary to elucidate difficult words (*I* didn't know that "gammy" meant clumsy) and other supplementary material on Samuel himself and his times, perhaps the most surprising of which was words and music (the music reproduced in facsimile) to a ballad which was sung during the working day in the story.

I would like this book even if my mother were not an Eaton with distant connections to the branch of the family that settled in Plymouth. But given the circumstances, it will be treasured. ( )

This is a picturesque book about a young boy named Samuel Eaton who is going to help out on his first harvest of the wheat. It takes him through his day from start to finish. It is told through the eyes of the boy. It is also a reenactment of what would have transpired in the 1620's. It takes place on Plymouth Plantation.. Colorful photographs add to the authenticity of this book.

This here's another picture book on life in the Plymouth Colony in 1627. This one follows the day of a boy, seven-year-old Samuel Eaton. It's a big day for Samuel--the first day he's allowed to work with the men as his father and a neighbor harvest their rye crop. Of course, that's not the selling point of the book. The main appeal of the volume is the phototgraphs of the Plimouth Plantation reenactment that show readers what life back then probably looked like. It's a nice little book, worth checking out if you want a quick history lesson for you or your young'un.
