"You are standing on a narrow quay-side waiting to board a small sailing ship. You are about to board a small sailing ship. You are about to make an exciting but dangerous and uncomfortable voyage . . ."
So begins this imaginative account of the voyage of The Mayflower which David Gay has written specially for young people. His exciting historical narrative follows the nine week passage of the Pilgrims through the eyes of an imaginary family, Matthew and Martha Lovelace, with their typical children, Justice and Prudence. They encounter such fascinating characters as Master Reynolds, John Howland and William Butten—all of whom really took The Mayflower's historic voyage. Here are three thousand miles of adventure, written with a sensitive appreciation of God's care for his people and young people's love for adventure.
