52 Books in 52 Weeks ~ Pilgrim Neighbors: More True Pilgrim Stories

This is book 4 of 52. I have a few books to do review of that will be posted in the next week.

Pilgrim Neighbors: More True Pilgrim Stories by Elvajean Hall

This was a read aloud for school. The boys and I enjoyed it.

Elvajean Hall found the information for this book while she was editing Pilgrim Stories, From Margaret Pumphrey's Pilgrim Stories. She was doing research for Stories of the Pilgrims when she found a lot more stories she wanted to share about the Pilgrims and the Indians. She didn't want to add to Margaret's book too much so she wrote a sequel.

This book has a lot of great stories: a snake skin filled with shot and powder; battles; drought and the Pilgrims get answer to prayer; secret meetings, messages and traitors; and partying neighbors. You thought partying neighbors was a modern day problem. Nope... There is nothing new under the sun!

I do recommend this book, especially if you are doing early American History. I also recommend Pilgrim Stories, From Margaret Pumphrey's Pilgrim Stories. My boys read that one themselves so I can't count it for the book challenge.
