half historical re-enactment and half reality tv
1 July 2018 | by raymond-andreSee all my reviews

As an amateur genealogist I was riveted. These 10 young people signed up for quite an adventure in wanting to cross the Atlantic to retrace the steps of their ancestors from he 17th century.

Their living conditions, though drastic from a 21st century stand point, were not nearly as awful as those of the actual colonists heading for New France. To compensate for this the producers gave them the extra duty of acting as members of the ship's crew, taking on sailing, rigging and maintenance of the three masted vessel under the guidance of an almost exclusively English speaking crew.

I found myself quickly rooting for the ten colonists. They were quite a sympathetic lot. As they discovered the difficulties of feeding themselves on board using only 17th century technology as well as improvising clothing, hammocks, etc. Suffering sleep deprivation and constant hunger, the group learns to pull together and offer each other moral support.

Well worth checking out if you can.
