I have to admit, I am one of those na ve Americans that has walked around in a bit of a fantasy land when it comes to the history of Plymouth and the Pilgrims From grade school, I knew they desired freedom to worship their religion without persecution In order to do so, they faced a difficult journey aboard the Mayflower prior to landing on the shores of New England There s a giant rock on which they must have set foot after disembarking from the ship I know the Pilgrims struggled to survive and [...]

Spoiler Alert The Mayflower lands in Plymouth Rocks fall, all the Native Americans die One of the most interesting things about Mayflower is how little of it actually dealt with the ship itself The Pilgrims are settled well, settled , and the Mayflower headed back to England to fall into disrepair and be sold for scrap by page 80 More than half the book is spent on King Philip s War and the events that lead to it, which actually concerns the two generations after the Mayflower s passengers Philb [...]

Multiple award winning author Nathaniel Philbrick has written a thrilling account of the 102 pilgrims and two dogs who sailed to the New World on board The Mayflower in 1620 The author focuses primarily on two of the pilgrims I have focused on two people, one familiar, the other less so Plymouth governor William Bradford and Benjamin Church, a carpenter turned Indian fighter whose maternal grandfather had sailed on the Mayflower The pilgrims were from Leyden in Holland, but they were Englishmen [...]

I was enthralled with this popular history of the first 60 years of Plymouth Colony starting with the Mayflower landing in 1620 With a focus on the actions and decisions of a limited set of key individuals, Philbrick s account brings to life the initial desperate events of the colony half of the initial 102 died the first year and the early years of dependence on the support of the Pokenoket tribe I was enlightened to learn how decimation of Indian villages by disease and the competitive balance [...]

Pilgrims Indians War This is an in depth look at the first years of the colonists in New England, and also the terrible war with the Indians that the next generation faced Philbrick s book is called Mayflower, but only the first section of it focuses on the sea voyage and the Mayflower Compact I was especially interested in learning what the colonists did in the early days of their settlement, how they adapted to the land and worked on their homes However, a majority of the book is about King Ph [...]

When it comes to American history, we have a tendency towards reduction We cherish the myth over the reality the bombastic over the subtle the simple over the complex In modern media terms, we prefer the soundbite to the whole speech On the Fourth of July, for example, we aren t thinking about competing mercantile interests, unpaid French and Indian War debts, or the Townsend Acts Not at all Instead, as we get hot dog drunk and light off fireworks, we re probably imagining a guy with a wig and a [...]

Nathaniel Philbrick s book Mayflower appears at first glance to be merely a recounting of the Pilgrims journey to the New World and their miraculous survival that first winter culminating in the first Thanksgiving, that s all here, but takes up only about 80 pages of the 450 page book In reality, Philbrick offers the reader a complete history of Plymouth Colony from 1620 1691 when it was merged into Massachusets Bay colony The bulk of the narrative focuses on King Phillip s War 1675 76 for my mo [...]

This was an experience similar to David McCullough s John Adams biography for me It opened my eyes to a world I only had vague images about And, I come away a little bit bitter and bothered by many different aspects of human behavior, the big one man s intolerance of other people and their cultures and many times, their ability to blame their bad behavior on the teachings of the Bible or other beliefs in whatever God they worshipped The Puritans wanted to get away from the religious rules and re [...]

A must read if you re from New England or interested in early colonial era history Philbrick s Mayflower is written to capture your interest in a way you might not expect a book on the Pil YAWN grims could You ll find much detail with way truth in this book than anything you learned about those uptight prigs in elementary school

Instead of the story we already know, it becomes the story we need to know This story had very little to do with the voyage of the Mayflower or even the Mayflower Compact but is indeed an in depth Story of Courage, Community, and War Growing up I had learned the popular version of the story of the Pilgrims They left Europe seeking religious freedom and after a difficult voyage on the Mayflower settled in New England where they struggled to survive and the Native Americans came to their aide Ther [...]

I think were it not that I ve been so spoiled by some amazing history books lately, I d be rating this five stars It s certainly the perfect book to read right before American Thanksgiving The Mayflower, as every American schoolchild has been taught, is the name of the ship that brought the Pilgrims, a group of religious dissenters, to America to establish one of the earliest English colonies While still on board the male settlers signed the Mayflower Compact revered as a precursor to the Americ [...]

Everything you wanted to know about the pilgrims but were afraid to askOnce again, a ton of new information to me that goes far beyond the common knowledge we have about this period of America s history, including King Philip s War that was probably the bloodiest war in terms of casualties that this country has ever had.From the first arrival of the pilgrims in a strange and hostile wilderness where it was quickly determined that cooperation with the natives was crucial to their survival to the [...]

This was a good though not as good as In the Heart of the Sea yet challenging read.Though titled after the Mayflower, this is really a story about the Pilgrims, their search for religious freedom, and their relationship with the Native Indians that culminates in a detailed account of King Philip s war.The book is well researched and well written, if occasionally hard to follow there s just a lot of info here In addition, the narrative shifts constantly to reflect whatever references were used at [...]

Unabridged audio book.I read listened to in this case this over Thanksgiving a while back It s a pretty good attempt at an even handed treatment of the subject I find that while earlier versions of the story tend to view the Pilgrims universally as heroic not a bad thing for young students in my view the recent attempts have gone the other way There seems to be a need to see them almost as villains They were of course, human, a mixture of good and bad Many of the things they did that have been [...]

Interesting read, and by far the best account of the Pilgrims ordeal that I ve seen so far The first half of the book is a real page turner which details the pre Mayflower days in England and Holland the ordeal of finding financing while avoiding persecution from their mother country and moves on to the 10 week voyage and the harrowing first winter in Plymouth The author then skips forward about 40 years, to give his account of King Philip s war and the consequent annihilation of most of New Eng [...]

This is not a book about the crossing over on the Mayflower, although that is briefly touched on This book describes the years leading up to the voyage, and the Pilgrims first 55 years in America The first part of the book reads like fiction with passages such as this What would have astounded a modern sensibility transported back to that Christmas Day in 1620 was the absolute quiet of the scene Save for the gurgling of Town Brook, the lap of waves against the shore, and the wind in the bare win [...]

Good research here and lots of historical facts about the Mayflower, the early days of settlement, and the increasing tensions with the native inhabitants of the New World, but the presentation was generally unimaginative It took the form of a plodding linear trudge through time It was at times amazing to consider what the pilgrims went through and what they put the Native Americans through, but it wasn t until the final chapter that the author pulled the pieces together and gave a narrative sto [...]

It s good Philbrick includes so much interesting information upon the physical world, beyond the historic events and people Especially within ship voyages, as he does here with the Gulf Stream.These people on the Mayflower were serious about their religion And to have such faith in their God s protection But it is nearly impossible to form the perceptions and conceptions of their reality to what they would find, IMHO Because their entire worldview was so elementally different Four of those kids [...]

We Americans all have some vision of the Pilgrims, from Plymouth Rock to the first Thanksgiving, to what the colonial world looked like The elementary school version which has remarkable staying power for many is the image of religious Pilgrims seeking religious freedom in a new world, nurtured by the help of the natives, giving us our idyllic First Thanksgiving The revised standard version from the 60s focuses on the decimation of the native populations, the rapacious capitalists among the firs [...]

Beyond Turkeys, Cranberry Sauce, Tall Hats, and Buckled ShoesNathaniel Philbrick s remarkable Mayflower is everything you d hope a history book to be illuminating, lively, and authoritative This was simply a terrific read, a fascinating glimpse into the events and people serving as the first bricks in our nation s foundation.Beyond the fairytale images of The First Thanksgiving , most basic American history skips from the Mayflower s 1620 landing in Plymouth the American Revolution, glossing ove [...]

On the positive side, I thought this book was well researched and clearly written I also valued that this book brought to light a realistic view of how the Pilgrims approached the Native American people, land, and resources However, I found the book to be less about the voyage of the Mayflower and the overall life of the Pilgrims settling Plymouth Colony, and of a factual recitation of the continuous conflict that ensued between the Pilgrims and the Native Americans The book is less like a nove [...]

This wasn t exactly what I was expecting in terms of writing as well as the premise of the book.I had anticipated the book to be written similarly to In the Heart of the Sea The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex, which had many facts but was similar to a novel in its storytelling Mayflowerwas rather dry and, whereas I did learn a great deal, I found myself drowning in a sea of facts The book, as a friend had mentioned, reads like a textbook, thus less enjoyable.As far as the story, I was expecting [...]

Profoundly readable history of the Mayflower and the Pilgrim s Plymouth Colony settlement in the early 17th century Much of what I was taught about this was either wrong or grossly misleading It is astounding what the early settlers had thrown at them and managed to barely survive Brutal weather, horrible leadership, devastating diseases, native American attacks and betrayals, and massive food shortages plagued the settlers right from the start and never let up It s a story of perseverance and c [...]

I just finished Mayflower by Nathaniel Philbrick and give it 4 out of 5 stars.How have I missed out on Nathaniel Philbrick s writing I really enjoyed his writing style and he really seems to know his stuff Mayflower is of course about the voyage the Pilgrims took in 1620 to come to America from England I learned a lot about the voyage and the Pilgrims founding of Plymouth while listening to this audiobook Everyone hears about the first Thanksgiving, but I didn t know about the various wars and s [...]

Omg This book should not be disguised as a novel It s really a text book don t be fooled I must finish this one by this thanksgiving and impress everyone at the dinner table with my knowledge of the first thanksgivingers hardships and triumphs I think it s been 2 yrs I ve been trying to finish this one p

I found this book loaded with fact, I felt like I was studying for a history exam But, it was interesting My Swedish ancestors wouldn t have had an America to immigrate to if the Pilgrims weren t a stout and resourceful people.

MUST READ Even if you re not a history buff, you will benefit from finally hearing the true story of the roots of this country Philbrick bridges the gap between the prevailing ideals of this time, the first being the sweet story of the pilgrims and natives sitting down for turkey and indian corn and pie, trading goods and stories alike, the second being the idea that those brutal English arrived and forced the natives off their land Bad English, Bad Of course, it s much complicated than that an [...]

Philbrick tells two stories, one of the Pilgrims, devout separatist Puritans who founded Plymouth Colony in 1620 seeking religious freedom and peace another of succeeding generations with less worthy motivations Philbrick is at his very best describing the first generation, their sacrifice and hardships, their faith and fortitude, their reliance on the help of the Indians and their striving for cooperation and peaceful coexistence But before long their high ideals began to erode Then in the 1630 [...]

I found this book to be very informative The beginning of the book, which described the Puritans struggle to come to America, was interesting I also thought that the descriptions of the initial days of their lives in the foreign land, largely surviving only on the provisions they brought with them and coping with much colder weather than they were used to, was fascinating The middle portion of the book, which described life for the Plymouth Rock colony after other other groups from England had i [...]

I was absolutely fascinated by this story of the lives of the Pilgrims their early exile to Holland in order to worship according to their faith, the decision to set up a colony in North America, and what transpired over 3 generations of diplomacy and war with the Native Americans It was clear from the start that the colonies needed a relationship with the native peoples in order to survive, and it was also clear that this relationship would end in war The most exciting aspect of this book was i [...]
