How the Pilgrims Came to Plymouth Author:Olga W. Hall-Quest That the Pilgrims actually came to Plymouth at all is a miracle, but just how they came, by what devious ways they traveled before finally they arrived at the land of their hopes and dreams, this is a little-known and completely absorbing story. — Mrs. Hall-Quest opens her story in England when the first little group started out so bravely, only ... more »to meet with defeat and disaster through the double dealing of a ship's captain. The second group reached Holland in due course, Pilgrims of tolerance, yet so childishly intolerant of the Hollanders' happy informality that they did not linger, but were presently on their perilous way again.
That long, long journey, the first unsuccessful landing, and the final arrival at Plymouth, all form parts of one of the most powerful sagas of the sea in all history. It is all here, written in the simple, unembroidered style dear to readers of all ages, but particularly to children whose interest lags under elaboration.
Fine black and white illustrations by James MacDonald point up the more significant episodes and add just the right touch to this really outstanding story of one of the greatest voyages of all time.« less
