I loved learning about this hero. Always brave, often stubborn, it is fun to think about how he grew up and became a champion for the persecuted Pilgrims.

Does not seem to ring as true as some of the other titles in this series, though the jacket copy clearly states, "Few facts are known about Standish's early life..."
