The Boy Who Fell Off the Mayflower, or John Howland’s Good Fortune

John Howland’s tale is masterfully told in his own voice, bringing an immediacy to the familiar Pilgrims’ story. P.J. Lynch captures this pivotal moment in American history in precise and exquisite detail, from the light on the froth of a breaking wave to the questioning voice of a teen in a new world.
