A journey through history, with that embodiment of A Young Girls Diary. Perfecting a realised painting of the way of life of the American landscape of the 1700's.

I would recommend this book to anyone who sat on their grandparents lap, and listened intently to the way of life, we may never experience again. When I read through this
Biopic novel, I am taken to that place when my grandfather was alive, and I was 7, telling me about his days as young. Journeys through the Great Depression, 1930s, and the wake of WW2 and Korean War. This book awakened those emotions, and the joy of the times past.

Funny and Insightful

I am about a third of the way through Mr. Cresswell's Journal, and I have found it very entertaining. We don't know why he has decided he must go to America. Is it because he is has been berated for poor financial acumen or he has been naughty with a lady like one of his friends has? He spends lots of time aboard ship and sea sick, yet keeps boarding ships. He has bad luck in his first ventures, but his descriptions of tropical fish and fruit in the Barbadoes provides a fun game in "name this plant." I would definitely recommend. Not a difficult read at all. Review by Creel (Posted on 5/1/2018)
Amazing details

There are a lot of small details here -- the physician who seemed to be making him sicker, small details of the slave trade, local etiquette, concerns about the growing rebellion. If you have an interest in everyday history, this is perfect. Review by Erin (Posted on 4/11/2018)
