KIRKUS REVIEW

Meg Dillon, fifteen, and therefore old enough to be betrothed to a boy from her home in London, goes with her parents to America in 1620 with the Mayflower Pilgrims. There she experiences the excitement of the stark new world with the hard work and death that all but wiped out the Pilgrims in Plymouth that first winter. She becomes a friend of Squanto, the invaluable Indian friend of the Pilgrims. There is some feeling for the London scene, but the yarn is far-fetched as a whole with stereotyped characters-Squanto's Jeeves-like personality is a little silly even for this age group. Hollywood history.
