John took a few quick steps in the direction of the door, grasped the knob in his hand and turned it. The door swung open abruptly, almost pushing him over, as the body of a man fell crashing to the floor in front of him.
This is how the story was told to me when I was a child. A strange tale, thrilling, exciting, interesting. A story of days filled with loneliness, homesickness, discouragement, sickness and death. A story of the building of a home in a strange land. A home filled with the laughing voices of children where many found love, security and comfort. Early in the year of 1837 a group of young men and women, finding life very difficult because of oppression and many hardships, set sail on a sailing vessel for America. At last morning came and they went ashore. Strangers in a strange land at the dawn of a new day and of a new life.
