Summary
"How did America begin? This simple question launches author Nathaniel Philbrick on a journey to understand the truth behind our most sacred national myth: the voyage of the Mayflower and the settlement of Plymouth Colony. As Philbrick reveals in this book, the story of the Pilgrims does not end with the First Thanksgiving; instead, it is a fifty-five year epic that is at once tragic and heroic, and still carries meaning for us today." "That crucial half-century, from 1620 to 1676, began in peril, ended in war, and contained the seeds of what would come to define America. Philbrick salutes the real courage of the Puritan true believers, willing to risk all for their religious convictions, as well as the generosity and sophistication of the Native Americans. But he also evokes the terrible fury of war."--BOOK JACKET
