Review

"The book shows its research, and Schmidt takes the facts he has garnered and turns them into highly readable prose as he discusses the early history of the colony as well as Bradford’s own story. . . . A solid choice for biography collections." — Booklist

"This well-written biography of the Pilgrim leader will be a welcome addition to historic collections. . . . Schmidt tells the story well, frequently quoting from the accounts of Bradford himself, as well as others." — School Library Journal

"Paying tribute to both the political skills and the deep spirituality of Plymouth Colony’s guiding light, Schmidt paints a warm and cohesive picture of William Bradford’s role in that colony’s foundation and growth." — Kirkus Reviews
