DESCRIPTION: “Adventures of Will Latham on the First Voyage of the Pilgrims: For more than two hundred years little was known aof what really happened when the little Pilgrim band set sail for a strange and forbidding New World. Then in 1856 a searcher found in a dusty British library Governor William Bradford’s own story of the ‘Plimouth Plantation.’ We know the Pilgrims brought with them 41 boys and girls. This is the story of one of those young passengers.”  (from the back cover)


About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
