Mayflower Remembered: A History of the Plymouth Pilgrims
by Crispin Gill
With black/white photographs
The story of the Pilgrim Fathers has passed into the folklore of English and American history. But just what did they do and why? Mayflower Remembered sorts out the facts: traces the people from their little villages in the north Midlands to their sojourn in Holland, the kind of ship they found to move them to the New world and the trails they faced in settling there.
Although the religious, political and economic forces that prompted a group of ordinary men, women and children to undertake this astonishing adventure are examined, the story emerges as a simple narrative of real excitement. The Pilgrims are set firmly in their English and Dutch historical background and running parallel with their establishment in 'the old Colony' is the story of the whole settlement of the eastern American seaboard.
