If You Sailed on the Mayflower in 1620

IF YOU SAILED ON THE MAYFLOWER in 1620

Would you be able to keep clean? There were no bathrooms on the Mayflower. If you wanted to wash, you would wash in salty water from the sea. Most likely, you would wear the same clothes day after day, night after night, for 66 days and nights. At the end of the long voyage, your clothes would be torn and dirty – and smelly too. Tantalizing questions and answers. Illustrated by Anna DiVito. Ages 5-12
