Who were the Pilgrims? This handsome photo essay examines the daily life of one family in a Pilgrim settlement in 1636 in the context of the workings of the entire colony. Readers will meet the members of Prentiss family, who live and work in the Plymouth Colony. Each one—including the children—has an important role to play. The routines of the household, food, dress, labor, leisure time, religion and government, health and medicine, and special occasions such as the First Thanksgiving are among the many topics examined. Also highlighted are the circumstances that led to the Pilgrims’ voyage to the New World, what they found, their relations with the Indians who were already living there, and how they set about building and maintaining their settlement. This large-format book features clear text and informative sidebars packed with authentic details. Full-color photographs that show actual sites and artifacts and provide an accurate pictorial account of the Pilgrims’ life more than 300 years ago.
