Descrizione

A short, red-headed and red-faced man with a bold personality, Myles Standish is remembered for his soldierly defense of the Mayflower Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony. But he was just one participant in a legendary struggle for the colony’s survival in a harsh new world.

Departing from Holland, the Pilgrims fought off hunger, disease, and terrifying weather to arrive on the northeast coast of North America.Working tirelessly to establish a settlement before the onslaught of winter, the settlers learned how to plant maize from the friendly Indians they encountered, including an invaluable translator they called Squanto and the great chief Massasoit. But difficulties with other, unfriendly, Indians spurred Myles Standish to stand tall and build a fort to defend their homesteads.

This exciting tale of the early settlers and their hard-won triumphs and many tragedies illuminates an important part of American history for young listeners. Acclaimed author Cheryl Harness’ enthusiastic interpretation makes the story of the first Thanksgiving fascinating for children and their parents alike.
