Publisher Summary
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.

Brings to life the experiences of the Pilgrims and their military advisor, Myles Standish, in America, describing the people they met, the hardships they overcame, and the many successes they achieved.
