Description
Nathaniel Philbrick became an internationally renowned author with his National Book Award? winning "In the Heart of the Sea," hailed as ?spellbinding? by "Time" magazine. In "Mayflower," Philbrick casts his spell once again, giving us a fresh and extraordinarily vivid account of our most sacred national myth: the voyage of the "Mayflower" and the settlement of Plymouth Colony. From the "Mayflower"'s arduous Atlantic crossing to the eruption of King Philip's War between colonists and natives decades later, Philbrick reveals in this electrifying history of the Pilgrims a fifty-five-year epic, at once tragic and heroic, that still resonates with us today.
