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.

Oddly enough, I'm not that familiar with this time in American history. I've never heard of King Phillip's War before reading this book. There were parts of the War section of this book that made me feel a lot of sympathy for the Native Americans and very little for the Pilgrims (well, their childre...

Very educational, and interesting in that it is so educational. I don't have a strong foundation at all in early American history, and although I had heard of King Philip's War, I certainly had no idea of its scope or scale. I am also not familiar with the geography of this region of the country, ...
