Readers will enjoy lots of dirty details about the Mayflower's voyage, while learning the truth behind many myths about the Pilgrims. Historical images enhance the main content and fascinating fact boxes add even more gross, fun, and baffling information to augment lessons taught in the social studies classroom.
