Product Description

Myles Standish was known by many nicknames, and is known for his many great deeds. This amusing and fact-filled biography is written in a casual voice, as if speaking to a friend, with interesting side notes, diversions, and interjected commentary. A witty and never-boring read, students will learn about the reasons for the Pilgrim's banding together as a group, trip to the New World, what the first years were like, how they carried out relations with the Native Americans, and all about the lives of the colonists. Illustrations throughout provide visual interest and help with conceptualization of historical concepts. A running timeline at the bottom of each page provides a world-wide context of events that were happening simultaneously. 144 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

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.
