Samuel Eaton is a seven year old boy who sailed on the Mayflower and now is living on Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts in 1627. This is the story of what life would have been like for a boy of his age living in those times. The photographs that illustrate the book show life in the living history museum Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts. So, you're hearing Samuel's story and seeing it "lived" in a museum of today. What would he wear? How would he spend a day? Would he go to school? Would he run free? He's very excited because today he gets to help harvest the rye crop. How hard will that be? This is a companion book to Sarah Morton's Day and Tapenum's Day.
