Comments Down Ryton Water

  • Sarah Grace

    One of my favorite historial fiction books! Absolutely amazing, this is a story a will always treasure! I love reading it around Thanksgiving, but it is appropriate for all time! A must read, and a great read aloud!

    Newbery Honor and Medal books through the years have been set in a wide variety of historical timeframes, but there definitely was an available niche for one about the separatist Pilgrims of 1600s England and their flight from King James I to America, where they hoped to find religious freedom. In 1941, Down Ryton Water delivered that Newbery Honor-worthy recounting of the Pilgrims' travels, told from the perspective of not-quite-five-year-old Matt Over in his little English hamlet of Scrooby. T [...]

    I never thought I'd enjoy reading about the Pilgrims so much! This story of the religious separatists of Scrooby's journey to New Plymouth is told through the eyes of Young Matt Over. He's just turning 5 when the King's Men come to Scrooby in search of the separatists' leader William Brewster; it's 1608 and the king is James Stuart. Matt's the son of a yeoman farmer Matthew Over and his Goodwife Orris nee Brode, herbalist, and the brother of the "damp woman child, 'Memby", short for Remember (or [...]

    I found it a little tedious to get into this one, largely due to the style of its era, but ended up quite enjoying the story. Most people don't realize "The Pilgrims" didn't come straight to Plymouth from England, but had a long stop-over in the region of Holland first. While slightly patronizing (though much less so than other books from this period), this book also holds a broader picture of the Native American presence at the time of settlement than the image of a completely untamed land that [...]

    I didn't read a description before I began the book, so I had no idea that I was going to be reading a story of the Pilgrims. I caught on pretty quickly, though, and really enjoyed this very natural telling of the Pilgrims' journeys. In the beginning, I thought Young Matt's voice was awfully sophisticated for a 5-year-old, but I still enjoyed his telling of the tale. And honestly, his voice doesn't change all that much as we follow him into his early twenties. I enjoyed seeing the Over family in [...]

  • Thomas Bell

    This was a pretty good book. It is an interesting historical fiction from the early 1600's. It follows a Pilgrim family from Scrooby, England as they follow their spiritual leader, William Brewster, first to Leyden, Netherlands and then to start a settlement in the New World (Plymouth). It was fun and interesting.However, there were definitely things about the book that bugged me. First, they kept calling babies 'damp.' It's okay now and then, but they just kept at it like a kid you laugh at and [...]

  • Donna Jo Atwood

    Young Matt Over tells his story of how and why the Pilgrims went first to Holland and then to America. William Bradford, James Billings, and other familiar historical people appear, but the Over family gives Pilgrims a better name than the cheerless history we got as Kindergarteners. Read for 30.9 Rachel Lee's TAsk-The Newbery Award, honor book 1942

  • Mckinley

    I wasn't clear what this was about when I started reading it. It's the story of why the group of pilgrims left England for Holland and why they left there for the new world. I liked the voice and content.

  • Joanna

    I really like this author's style. A jaunty, humorous, page turning book. Recommended.

  • Scott Williams


  • David

    Interesting historical fiction about the Pilgrims because it gives a lot of the back story. The Mayflower doesn't even show up until 2/3rds through the book.
