A modern translation of the journal kept by Governor William Bradford and others of the Mayflower company describing the landing of the Pilgrims on Cape Cod, their search for a homesite, the first meetings with Indians, and the final building of the settlement at Plymouth.
Homes in the Wilderness was first published in London in 1622 as A Relation or Journal of the Proceedings of the Plantation settled at Plymouth in New England. For this edition (1939) the old language has bee somewhat modernized by Margaret Wise Brown, but every effort has been made to preserve the flavor of the original vigorous King James English.
The book was renamed in 1939 because the old title was unwieldy and failed to suggest the dramatic struggle of this gallant company of a hundred who made their homes in the wilderness.
Profusely illustrated by Mary Wilson Stewart in 1939.
