Adventures in the Real World: Voyage of the Mayflower

Written by Roger Canavan

Age: 9-11


The titles in the Adventures in the Real World series provide in-depth, fast-paced accounts of famous, world-changing voyages and expeditions throughout history, using a mix of easy-to-read text, fact boxes providing historical context, comic strips dramatising significant episodes in the journey and maps of the routes taken to appeal to reluctant readers. Voyage of the Mayflower retells the historical journey of the eponymous ship and the pilgrims aboard it from Europe to Plymouth Rock in North America. The story is recounted by two rats, descendants of those who travelled on the Mayflower, and discusses the religious persecution that led the emigrants to brave the sea voyage, the hardships of the crossing and what life was like surviving in the new environment, as well as the experiences of the Native Americans whose world was changed forever by the pilgrims arrival.
