Description
A dog's-eye view of the "Mayflower" voyage and the first Thanksgiving at Plymouth Colony
English springer spaniel Dash and his furry friend Mercy--a mastiff--travel with their master, John Goodman, in search of the New World. Taken from the pages of history, this Dog Diary follows the story of the colonists whom we now call Pilgrims, from their sixty-six-day voyage at sea to the celebration of their first harvest with the Wampanoag Indians who become their friends and advisors. With realistic black-and-white illustrations by Tim Jessell and an appendix including information about the "Mayflower, " Plymouth Colony, springer spaniels, and the primary sources on which the book is based, this is historical fiction that dog-loving middle graders--and educators--can be truly thankful for.



About the Author

Now that her sons are all grown up, she has finally found the time to write the story down. When she is not writing, Kate is a childrena (TM)s book publisher. She lives in upstate New York with her husband, Harry, three horses, and one grandcat.
