William Bradford: Rock of Plymouth

Front Cover
Millbrook Press, Jan 1, 1999 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 192 pages
William Bradford was the man most responsible for the successful founding of Plymouth Colony, the most famous of all early American settlements. His story is one of narrow escapes, intrigues and spying. There were battles with England and with Native Americans. There was the joy of successes and the sadness at the tragedies that struck the colony again and again.
