Product Overview

Say hello to Myles Standish, a fiery man with short legs and an even shorter temper. When he got mad his face turned as red as his hair, earning him the nickname "Captaine Shrimpe."
It''s a story that has been told for almost 400 years--how a brave band of people set sail on the "Mayflower" to find a new life in America.
By weaving her chatty, narrative text with her incredibly detailed artwork, award-winning author-illustrator Cheryl Harness makes readers feel as though they are part of the adventure.
Students will discover all sorts of things they never knew before: that a teenage boy almost blew up the "Mayflower" and that the first Indian the Pilgrims met greeted them in English! They''ll learn more serious things, too: all about why they came, the hardships they suffered, the people they met, and the successes they achieved.
Middle-graders will experience one of history''s great adventures as only Cheryl Harness can tell it.
