Sarah Morton's Day
A Day in the Life of a Pilgrim Girl
by KATE WATERS
Photographs by RUSS KENDALL


At sunup, when the cockerel crows, young Sarah Mortonís day begins. Follow her through her work and play in a 1627 English settlement on the Massachusetts shore.

There is a fire build, breakfast to cook, chickens to feed, goats to milk, and letters and scripture to learn. There is even time to play with her best friend Elizabeth with whom she shares secrets and dreams. And there is her new stepfather, too. Will she ever learn to call him father and earn his love?

Photographed at Plimoth Plantation, a living history museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and based on real people of the time, this is a charming and accurate portrayal of the life of the early English colonists in seventeenth-century New England.
