Children's Hardcover Book, John Billington Friend of Squanto, Clyde Robert Bulla, Fiction, Childrens Adventure, Weekly Reader Book, Illustrated

A wonderful children's hardcover book called John Billington Friend of Squanto. Weekly Reader 1956 edition. Illustrated by Peter Burchard.

This is a story about John Billington, who came over on the Mayflower as a boy. His natural mistakes were often misinterpreted as carelessness and open aggression. But his friendship with Squanto provided the opening of a friendship between his people and the Indians of Cape Cod. After the Pilgrims settled, John is made miserable by the most recent misunderstanding with the pilgrims and runs off to be alone in the forest. Lost, he is taken by Chief Aspinet's men and kept with the tribe. But his friendship with Squanto has given the boy knowledge of Indian ways which makes life easier for him. After his rescue, in which Squanto is instrumental in, the friendship which builds with the native people, provides the Pilgrims with a new security.

Clyde Robert Bulla (1914-2007) was an American writer who wrote over fifty books for children.
