This biography for young readers tells of the adventurous life of Squanto, the Wampanoag Indian who befriended the Pilgrims at Plymouth. Squanto had traveled to London with some English explorers and was sold into slavery in Spain. He finally returned to America, where he befriended the Pilgrims when they landed.
The selflessness of Squanto is a good starting point for a discussion about this pivotal time in American history, during which the Indians had to make room for the new, white culture. The story is simply, yet engagingly told, and will inspire many questions about the customs and lifestyles of two very different societies.
