    Dear America: A Journey to the New World (Enriched EBK)

    by Kathryn Lasky

    Mem is only 12 years old when her family, seeking freedom and opportunity, decides to board the Mayflower and head to America. Their journey over the sea is treacherous, filled with storms and horrific sickness. And when they arrive, they face even worse hardships in the brutal and unfamiliar wilderness.

    Then Mem meets two Native Americans, and she quickly realizes that if the settlers are going to make it through their first few years, they will need the help of the native tribes. But will the people listen?

    Dear America: A Journey to the New World  

    by Lasky, Kathryn

    Twelve-year-old Remember Patience Whipple ("Mem" for short) has just arrived in the New World with her parents after a grueling 65-day journey on the MAYFLOWER.

    Mem has an irrepressible spirit, and leaps headfirst into life in her new home. Despite harsh conditions, Mem is fearless. She helps to care for the sick and wants more than anything to meet and befriend a Native American.

    Her wish comes true when she meets Squanto, who helps Mem and her family face a year of trial, tragedy, and thanksgiving.
