William Bradford (Leaders of the Colonial Era)

by Heather Lehr Wagner

William Bradford (Leaders of the Colonial Era) Synopsis

In an attempt to avoid persecution for his religious beliefs, William Bradford boarded the Mayflower for freedom in the New World. After a difficult and lengthy journey, what Bradford saw was a desolate wilderness, a territory more than 500 miles from the closest English settlement and one in which he and the other colonists were not legally entitled to settle. Elected governor, Bradford established discipline among these new Americans, built a friendly relationship with the local Wampanoag tribe, and learned the necessary skills for planting crops and finding food. His success and writings continue to provide an accurate view of life as an early settler. Students will find a fascinating narrative in William Bradford about this governor who met with disappointment and success while leading the colonists in the New World.
