Homes in the Wilderness
- Category: Ages 8-12, Ages 13+, Living History, New!, Worldwide Books
An account of living history kept by Governor William Bradford and others of the Mayflower company, chronicling the adventures of the Pilgrims’ day-to-day life after arriving in the New World.
Homes in the Wilderness, first published in London in 1622, conveys the struggles of this gallant company of a hundred through the first long, hard winter of 1620, and the building of their settlement at Plymouth in the spring of 1621. The old language was modernized just enough in 1939 by the beloved author of Goodnight Moon, Margaret Wise Brown, while preserving the flavor of the original King James English.
This edition for young people includes a list of Mayflower passengers, a glossary of old words, and several maps. Profusely illustrated by Mary Wilson Stewart.
