American History by Time Period & Topic

Freedom: William Bradford and the American Pilgrims Audio CDs

Four hundred years ago, 102 men, women, and children crowded between decks of a small cargo ship named The Mayflower and set out for the New World. Who were these people, willing to risk everything and move to a wild, untamed land? Why did they go, what did they do, and does any of it even matter today? Using talented voice actors with dramatic sound effects and including recent historical discoveries, Freedom: William Bradford and the American Pilgrims tells a riveting and timely tale of determination, endurance, and conviction. In the 6-episode Part 1, the story begins with young William Bradford and continues through the trials of fleeing England, living in Holland, then preparing for and living through the voyage to America, and the first days in the New World. In Part 2, 7 episodes continue the story with the hardship and sorrow of the first winter in the New World through meeting Squanto and finding new ways to fish, hunt and grow crops, Massasoit’s healing by Edward Winslow, Myles Standish, and the first Thanksgiving. Part 1 is over 2 hours on 2 audio CDs. Part 2 is over 3 hours on 3 audio CDs. Ages 12 and up.
